The first day it had appeared on his video system was shortly after 6 a.m., said Douglas Spiegel, which was a little concerning because I know my daughter and my wife leave around 7:15. One night it stayed for about an hour, video footage shows, then darted away into the preserve behind the house, scared off maybe by a door opening or a car. Bears are naturally scared of humans and mostly just attracted by food opportunities. Officially theyve injured people 16 times in about 40 years on state record.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA2 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 11-17, 2015 Bring Your Highest Expectations LIVINGSTON ROADPINE RIDGE ROAD EXIT 107WHIPPORWILL LANE N COMMENTARY Panther one, Williams zipIt nailed my birds, which is why I now know: Theres a two-ring debate unfolding under Floridas big-top these days about the little lions that live virtually unseen among us the Florida panthers. In the first ring, we have the ongoing numbers show: How many panthers are left in the wild, really? Ranchers and hunters, and I suspect some developers whod rather not worry about panther habitat, question whether they should be on the endangered list anymore there are a lot more than 180, they insist. But thats the maximum possible number, according to state wildlife officials and environmentalists who even hire professional trackers from as far away as Texas to help count them. In the second ring are those who question all the old wisdom about the value of Florida panthers, not to mention the numbers and they also suggest that the more familiar with humans these lions get, the more threatening they may be not just to livestock or pets but to all of us. Although no documented panther attack on a human has ever occurred in Florida, the related but bigger mountainlion species of the west and far west have killed people on infrequent occasions. One proposal by wildlife biologists calls for setting up three populations of at least 240 animals each, in three distinct parts of Florida. But thats a bad idea, figures Immokalee-based rancher Aliesa Priddy, a member of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission appointed by Gov. Rick Scott in 2011. Last October she and other protestors to federal and state conservation efforts suggested at a public meeting in Naples that the little lions just might not be worth all the talk, planning and effort, anyway. I wonder if were trying to put a square peg in a round hole, she said in comments reported by the Naples Daily News. Not every species can be recovered. I think thats something we need to hold out there and consider. So maybe we just sort of not recover them? Let the cars and trucks do the rest? I became particularly interested in these questions last week after a neighbor reported that a friend of hers a person born and raised here who knew the difference between a bobcat and a panther, she assured us had seen a panther cross the road and move into the woods adjoining my property in east Lee County, just before dusk. That happened to be the night after something came out of those very woods, ripped out the chicken wire and then broke through the chain link that surrounded the night roost of our geese, ducks and chickens, and created a wideenough opening to seize several birds and pull them back through the hole. The creature took three as a carry-out meal, apparently, and left a couple of other broken birds to die. Until the phone call, I had figured it was nothing more than a big hungry bull raccoon, or less likely, a bobcat or even a small black bear. But there were no animal tracks, and only a trail with a few fading feathers leading back into the woods, so probably not a bear or coyotes, who arent likely to go through the fence with that much force. Could it have been a panther? Still figuring raccoon, I put out a raccoon livetrap, baited it with watermelon, sardines and marshmallows on a couple of nights running, and managed only to catch two would-be panthers my very indignant outdoor cats, who had refused to come in for the night. But I began to think about the real thing. And the more I thought about panthers, the more I could feel their amber eyes following me about the property from deep in the shadows of oaks and palmettos. And the more I thought about their presence about the fact that males can weigh up to 160 pounds, jump 15 feet or more straight up, spring as far as 35 or 40 feet, and move as silently as an ant the more I recalled with toocomfortable familiarity the obvious solutions of all the men in my youth: a rifle. I happen to own a couple. What if these purebred killing machines start running amok and eating our horses and the neighbors cows, our chickens and ducks, our dogs and cats and passing bicyclists and the children waiting for the school bus? A federal official at the Naples meeting even claimed the panthers are showing up on porches, and a Charlotte County hunter said hed been stalked four times. It would take a hell of a hunter to know he was being stalked by a Florida panther, even once, in my opinion, although a turkey hunter camouflaged and sitting still took cell-phone photos of one staring at him from about 15 feet away in the Big Cypress not long ago, as he tried to call in a tom. My wife reported that story in The News-Press. So what do I do, lock and load? Stand my ground no matter whats out there, and legal or not? Well, no. I got control of myself, killed the historic itch in my trigger finger, and reasoned it out this way. For several thousand years these creatures have lived and hunted these parts they own them. I figure its my burden to have to build a better coop, and to leave them the few woods that remain, the best of which lie in the Fakahatchee Strand, the Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge and the Big Cypress National Preserve. Fact is, I like having that panther around, watching me and mine a thing to be left alone. A thing real and uncompromising. A thing whose truth and beauty for us are hidden in the glorious wildness like unmined gold, as the great American naturalist John Muir put it. So, panther (or whatever it was) one, Williams zip, this time. And thats just fine. a t k m C G roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com
www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 11-17, 2015 Stupid smartA new season of uncertainty is unfolding in Tallahassee now that the state legislature has convened to do business in a special session. The lawmakers returned to work because they failed to adopt a state budget by law, their major job responsibility. Floridians look upon the debacle helplessly, unlikely to enforce accountability among those guilty of irresponsible behavior. Gerrymandered districts protect incumbency and minimize the risk of voter reprisals for the fiascoes these 40-watt bulbs perpetuate upon the state. Alls the more to pity since this is a selfmade sinkhole that swallows up enlightened governance. Welcome to the world of a Frankenstein democracy. It has all the body parts governance requires but the manner in which the conservatives stitch them together defies any suggestion the resulting corpus will function as a rationale, legislative body. To the contrary, state government is lurching forward and stumbling backward under the collapse of mean-spirited and nutty policies, without executive leadership, nor looking, acting or legislating as distinguished chambers, empowered with noble purposes, to serve with integrity, the peoples needs. Floridians are soon to find out how much worse it can get. The special session is dealing with issues left behind by an impasse between the states House and Senate over a proposed Senate plan to expand Medicaid to 800,000 uninsured, low-income and disabled Floridians. The speaker of the House and its members balked at the proposal, storming out three days before the Legislature was due to adjourn. Unanimity disintegrated across the chambers, elevating the tempest in Tallahassee to a topic of discussion nationwide, the meltdown left dozens of policy issues on the table, the granddaddy of them all being the approval of an $80 billion state budget. Now its chapter two. Gov. Rick Scott and House representatives adamantly oppose the states acceptance of federal dollars to expand Medicaid. However, interim to the special session, the federal government reduced the Low Income Pool dollars from $2.2 billion to $1 billion that reimburse Florida hospitals for the healthcare services they provide to the uninsured. The reduction assumes federal dollars available to Florida to expand Medicaid or a similar program takes the place of and fills the $1.2 million gap created by the LIP reduction. If this sounds simple, radical conservatives make it unceasingly complicated. The ideologues decree some money is tainted more than other money, despite its mutual origin from the same federal wallet. Along comes the reduction in LIP funding. The reduction blew a big hole in the governors plan to plow surplus funds into financing tax cuts. The gap creates a demand for money from the same pot, assuming the state takes its obligation seriously to shore up the safety net protecting the uninsured. The special session thus has before it a $1.2 million question: What does the deal look like, that the governor, the Senate and the House all agree to approve; and that plugs the funding gap left by the LIP reduction? Tough question. Genius in the Legislature is in short supply and common sense has gone missing, too. This is where things stand until they do not. Consumers groups, businesses, community leaders, hospitals, healthcare consortiums and a majority of voters support expansion of Medicaid. So what? replies the governor and House representatives. In their view, LIP money is good money and Medicaid money is bad money. The distinction has no rational defense. The consequences of this brilliant hair-splitting is the loss of $66.1 billion in federal payback to Florida for over the next decade; and 1.1 million Floridians eligible for Medicaid going without health insurance. The state thus assures Floridians receive no healthcare benefits from federal taxes paid for this purpose and the uninsured needing medical services will be dying to get them. Hurrah! Furthermore, since LIP money will continue to decline, offset the state reductions by requiring local hospitals and governments with health taxing districts to swallow the elephant. Let them raise the $900 million in resources needed to draw down the $1.2 billion for reimbursements for the medical care they provide the uninsured; or, minimize the states role altogether. Let the hospitals absorb the cuts by socializing their profit margins or getting out of the indigent-care business altogether. Meanwhile, sue the Obama administration for offering Florida financial incentives that reduce the reliance of the uninsured on pricey emergency room care and encourage them to seek medical care before they get sick. Who needs it? Finally, Florida can reduce by half the number of uninsured who qualify for Medicaid by designing its own statefunded, private insurance version of the program. Well go passive-aggressive; inject mean-spirited pettiness into our state Medicaid-like plan; add a bunch of caveats and ifs, ands, and buts to reduce enrollment, even though draconian terms to minimize participation are a poison pill to federal approval of the states plan. Who cares? By the blindness of our obedience to ideological purity, well demonstrate to the federal government and the world just how stupid smart we are! Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian.

It is the fight against climate change, an allegedly dire threat to the nations security, that brings out his inner Churchill. In remarks to the Coast Guard Academy commencement, Obama pledged his undying hostility to climate change and his determination to fight it on the beaches and in the fields. He called it one of the most severe threats we face and an immediate risk to our national security. He hailed the Coast Guard for building more fuel-efficient cutters, and the Marines for deploying with portable solar panels. It was one of the most insipid calls to arms ever made by an American commander in chief, and there is unlikely to be much competition until President Elizabeth Warren rallies the U.S. Navy against income inequality. From the presidents urgency, you would think that climate change is beheading American hostages and taking over large swathes of Middle Eastern countries, toward the end of establishing a hostile climatechange empire. The reality is that, even accepting his premises about the state of the science, he can only point to laughably tenuous connections between climate change and national security. The president cited drought as one of the causes of the Syrian civil war. Yet an article in the journal Middle Eastern Studies notes that Israel, Jordan and Lebanon experienced drought in 2007-2008. None of them collapsed into a genocidal hellhole. Nor is drought unusual in Syria. Quite reasonably, the article counsels focusing on the corrupt and dysfunctional Syria government as the fundamental cause of the uprising. Not to mention the fact that countries all over the Middle East and North Africa experienced revolts at the same time. The president warned of how climate change could create mass migrations, the kind of disruption that a White House document says will disproportionately affect Africa and Asia. Even if this is true, how will it implicate our national security? The United States was content to stand by while 800,000 people died in the Rwandan genocide and more than 5 million in Congos civil war. If that mass slaughter didnt move us, we arent going to mobilize the troops to manage climate-driven mass migrations. Another climate-change hot spot is the Arctic, with President Obama predicting that summers could be ice-free there by around 2050. Man the battle stations? Well, no. A Brookings Institution article notes that what were seeing in the Arctic is that receding ice is triggering commercial competition and governance cooperation; not conflict. Typically, the president implied clear and present dangers from climate change, although the consensus science he purports to champion projects effects on extreme weather roughly 80 years from now. By then todays cadets will have long ago passed the baton of the fearsome battle against climate change to subsequent generations. Of course, if climate change were a true enemy of the United States, President Obama would extend a hand of peace, or declare victory and go home. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.

Its mission is to bring business people of all faiths together and to supply members with the tools that will allow them to take every aspect of their lives above board. Members and guests meet every month in both Collier and Lee counties. In addition to hosting panel discussions on an array of topics, the chamber welcomes representatives of area nonprofit organizations to set up tables and distribute information at every meeting. Jeanne grew up in Bayonne, N.J., the middle child of five. I had a normal, middle-class Irish Catholic family and lots of wonderful friends, she says. I loved school but was a little shy at first. I loved to sing, so to get me out of my shyness my father had me in talent contests and up on the stage at an early age. As a young mother, when Jeanne learned that her oldest child was very sick with asthma, she started a chapter of the American Lung Association in her area and recruited its first board of directors. She also started a program to educate people about lung disease. She served as a board member for the American Red Cross and the local chamber of commerce, supported the local Boy Scouts of America and started a program called Silent Santas that delivered clothes and gifts to some of the poorest families in the area every Christmas. Jeanne moved to Florida in 1989 and has since served as a division director for the American Heart Association, executive director of the Council on Aging and executive director of Interfaith Caregivers.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 11-17, 2015 considered serious. None of those encounters were fatal to the humans involved. In seven of those instances people intentionally interacted with the bear. The likelihood of being bitten by an alligator, about one in 2.4 million, is far greater. There have been roughly 340 unprovoked gator bitings, 122 considered major bites, 21 fatal, in the same period. Even so, the bear incidents all occurred in the last decade. Reports of bear sightings, not all negative, have skyrocketed in recent years; more are being killed by cars as well as euthanized as development continues to encroach on their natural habitat. With bears increasingly mixing with people and their population continuing to rebound, state officials say it is time to re-open black bear hunting season in October for the first time since 1993 cautiously this first year, for a week or less, with a limit of one bear per hunter. Females with cubs would be protected. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissions seven governor-appointed commissioners are expected to unanimously approve the hunt along with other black bear management measures on the second day of their next scheduled meeting, Wednesday, June 24, in Sarasota. Hunting conservatively Ive hunted black bear in other states and its a lot of fun, said John Patrick, manager of Gator Guns & Archery Center in West Palm Beach. They keep the quota down low enough it cant hurt the population too bad. I think its a win for everybody. While hunters across South Florida have welcomed the news, conservation groups are alarmed. The Conservancy of Southwest Florida insists a hunt will do little to address human-bear conflicts. It asked the state to hold off on a hunting season at least until a current bear population count is available in 2016. The most recent count, about 3,000 bears, is based on 2002 figures. The main thing shown to decrease the conflicts between bears and people has been management of trash and other attractants, said Amber Crooks, senior natural resource specialist for the Conservancy. That in combination with securing habitat from development. FWC officials stress that hunting is only one tool in the toolbox for managing the black bear population and reducing conflicts. Nearly everyone agrees trash management and reducing attractants from birdseed to dirty grills is the key to avoiding violent conflicts or property damage from bears. Black bears have been spotted especially in outlying communities near their natural habitats such as Golden Gate Estates in Collier County, Estero and Lehigh Acres in Lee County, but also in downtown Punta Gorda last summer, downtown Fort Myers, Jupiter in Palm Beach County, and many areas in central and northern Florida. Even if they sometimes look like overfed bouncers, with adults in the 200 to 400 pound range, they can also sprint more than 30 miles per hour and climb 100 feet up a tree in 30 seconds. Bears growing presence is partly due to the states success in conserving the population after it was nearly wiped out. More than 11,000 black bears roamed early Florida until logging began to wipe out their homes. In 1994, when there may have been only a few hundred left, hunting them was finally made illegal. Then in 2012 they were removed from the states list of threatened species. Killing or injuring a black bear remains illegal, unless it is in self-defense of immediate harm or approved by the FWC a misdemeanor with fines up to $500 and 60 days in jail. Mixed hunting messages FWC administrators and some of its seven-member commission have found differing reasons to justify hunting black bears. (Hunting) is really the only feasible tool that we have to control population growth at the scales were talking about managing black bear populations in Florida, said Diane Eggeman, the organizations division of hunting and game management director. Other states that allow hunts have abundant, sustainable, in many cases expanding populations (of black bears), she said. One of the seven wildlife commissioners, Aliese P. Liesa Priddy, simply believes that if bears can be hunted sustainably then it should be allowed. I dont know that were really looking at hunting as a real population control measure that will eliminate the bear issue weve been dealing with the last couple of years, said Ms. Priddy, who lives south of Immokalee. Really the way I look at it more is like any other type of hunting that goes on in Florida. If there are sufficient numbers of the animal to justify hunting then FWC looks at establishing guidelines for that hunting to take place. Thirty-two out of 41 states with bears have hunts, points out Nick Wiley, executive director of FWC. Hunting as a population management tool is the number one reason were recommending it. Bear hunting is in our view a perfectly legitimate hunting opportunity, so thats part of the picture, too. Wildlife commissioner Priddy expects bear hunting to continue in the years to come. Well have the full population count in hand by the end of 2016 so we might adjust how many bears can be taken in a season, she said.A rush to the hunt?The Conservancy of SWFL argues that the FWC is rushing into plans for opening hunting season based on figures more than a decade old instead of redoubling efforts to work with cities, counties and neighborhood communities to focus on trash and food management programs. Studies presented at the fourth International Human-Bear Conflicts Workshop in Missoula, Mont., indicate that there is no correlation between hunting and reduced human-bear conflicts, the Conservancy wrote to FWC leadership. A hunting proposal will redirect limited staff time and resources to an effort that will do little, if anything, to address the real source of conflict and public safety concerns. FWC officials stress that hunting is only one part of a comprehensive approach to bear management and that 3,000 bears statewide is enough that a controlled hunt will stabilize the population as intended. The state aims to use a hunting season to harvest up to 20 percent of the black bear population per year, after those bears killed by vehicles and euthanasia are taken into account. Thats the right number to meet that complex set of public needs and wants out there, said Thomas Eason, Ph.D., a bear biologist and director of FWCs divisions of habitat and species conservation. Clearly we are way above the minimum number that would trigger a high risk for extinction, he said. Theres no question that hunting, through long history of use, is an appropriate and effective tool to manage bear populations. We do have a massive amount of effort focused on waste management. Weve been doing that for decades. Were ramping that up, including stricter penalties for feeding bears.Euthanasia and bear subpopulationsThe Conservancy of SWFL asked the FWC to hold off the hunt at least until the 2016 population count in part to see the effects of FWCs new aggressive approach on conflict bears which is resulting in many bears being euthanized. The number of bears the FWC euthanized for conflict with people and other reasons (such as a bear hurt by a car) increased steadily in the last five years, more than doubling from 27 in 2010 to 69 in 2014, along with a rising number of total captures. But this year so far, FWC records show 59 bears have been euthanized out of 64 captured. Only five were relocated.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JUNE 11-17, 2015 NEWS A9 the bears we are trapping are euthanized, said FWC spokesperson Gary Morse. And thats due to two things. One, an assessment of their behavior and two, we have very little space to put bears in anymore (in the wild). In addition, some of the areas to be approved for hunting could hurt smaller black bear subpopulations that have been isolated by development, said Ms. Crooks with the Conservancy. The FWCs Mr. Eason argued that specific locations in south, central and northern Florida have been picked exactly for their sensitivity to bear subpopulations. But one of those locations is in Hendry County, pointed out Ms. Crooks. That could endanger subpopulations of bears in Glades and Highlands counties that roam into that area. The GladesHighlands group may have dwindled to less than 100, she said, while 200 bears in a subpopulation are considered the minimum to not be at risk of being wiped out. Both sides agree on at least this much: We need to raise humans understanding, tolerance, what we call being bear wise so people understand how to coexist with bears. Mr. Eason said. Fun to hunt, good to eatHunters are looking forward to a possible black bear hunting season, even if its only a week. Corey Rugg knows hunters from northern states who are religious bear hunters and would be excited to take part in Florida. I hear guys talking about it here at the club, said Mr. Rugg, manager of Gulf Coast Clays in south Collier County. I know a lot of guys here that would actually be looking forward to it, its just another hunting opportunity. You hear people talking all the time, oh, theyre getting in my trash can, so using them to control the population if theres really that many, I think thats a really good idea. He hasnt spotted any bears but said he knows they live in the wilds near the gun club and come on to the property. I see their stool all the time. I know that they are here in this area. Ive just never seen one yet. Bears are pretty uptight with themselves. Dan Braswell is a Port Charlotte retiree who enjoys hunting, including deer, hogs and birds. But he feels local programs, including trash management and relocating bears, would better address human-bear conflicts than focusing on a hunting program that spans many areas in the state. Im very pro-hunting, Mr. Braswell said. But I think theyre using a shotgun approach to a local problem. For more practical purposes, black bears are hunted for their meat, hides and fur. The hunters do eat bear meat, said Ms. Eggemen, the FWC hunting and game management director. Ive had it myself. Its rich. Its good People use the meat. They use the hides, they use them for rugs or decorative items. A lot of people clean the skull and use that as kind of a showpiece. But there are a lot of comments out there that this is about trophy hunting and that is absolutely not the case. Bears are eaten and were putting rules in place to make sure hunters take them out of the woods and use them. A black bear can climb 100 feet up a tree in 30 seconds. Florida black bear (Ursus americanus oridanus)>> Appearance: Tan or nearly black muzzle, black fur and at times blonde or white blazes on their chests. >> Size: Adult males generally weigh between 250 and 350 pounds, though two record bears in excess of 700 pounds were found in Seminole County this year. Females generally weight between 130 and 180 pounds, with a 400-pound record holder. >> Breeding: Females generally have a litter, on average two to three cubs, every other year with cubs born around late January. About 25 to 50 percent dont survive. >> Biggest threats to bears: Their primary threat is from being hit by vehicles; and for cubs other bears, who see them as an easy meal. >> Diet: About 80 percent vegetarian, 15 percent insects and 5 percent meat from small game. >> Speed: They can sprint up to 35 miles per hour >> Home range: An average range for an adult bear is from 50 to 120 square miles for males. >> Senses: They have color vision and eyesight comparable to humans but more acute hearing. Their sense of smell is strong, able to pick up a scent from over a mile away. >> Lifespan: The oldest known bears in Florida lived to about 20 and in captivity have survived into their 30s. >> Habitats: Flatwoods, swamps, scrub oak ridges and bayheads.

If confronted at close range: >> Make sure the bear has an escape route. >> Do not turn your back, play dead, climb a tree or run, no matter what. >> Back up slowly and speak to the bear in a calm assertive voice, holding your arms up. >> Avoid direct eye contact, which may be viewed as aggressive behavior. >> If a bear clacks its teeth, moans, blows or paws the ground, it is as uncomfortable as you are. Truly predatory or aggressive black bears are eerily silent. >> If a black bear does attack you, ght back aggressively.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA12 WEEK OF JUNE 11-17, 2015 Alexander Pogrebniak M.D.Pediatric Ophthalmologist Meals 2.0Silicon Valley code-writers and engineers work long hours with apparently little time for food as we know it. Eating is time wasted, in the words of celebrity inventor Elon Musk, and normal meals a marketing facade, said another valley bigwig. The New York Times reported in May that techies are eagerly scarfing down generic (but nutrient-laden) liquids like Schmilk and People Chow, largely for ease of preparation, to speed their return to work. The Times food editor described one product as oat flour washed down with the worst glass of milk ever. Pancake batter, according to a Times reporter. (That supermarket staple Ensure? According to the food editor, its fine wine compared to Schmilk.) Distracted Americans Air travelers last year left $675,000 in (obviously) spare change in airport screening bins, reported the Transportation Security Administration in April. Of the cars reported stolen in 2014, 44,828 were with keys left inside them, according to an April National Insurance Crime Bureau release. American credit card holders fail to claim about $4 billion in earned rewards each year, according to CardHub.coms 2015 Credit Card Rewards Report. Our least hardy generation Nursing student Jennifer Burbella filed a lawsuit against Misericordia University (near Scranton, Pa.) for not helping her enough to pass a required course that she failed twice. The professional caregiver-to-be complained of stress so severe that she needed a distractionfree room and extra time for the exam, but claims she deserved even more special treatment. Four Columbia University students complained in May that courses in Greek mythology and Roman poetry need trigger warnings advance notice to super-sensitive students that history may include narratives of disturbing events (that have somehow been studied without such warnings for centuries). In March, following the departure of Zayn Malik from the British band One Direction, an executive with the Peninsula employment law firm in Manchester told Londons Daily Telegraph that he had received hundreds of calls from employers seeking advice about workers who were requesting compassionate leave because Maliks resignation had left them distraught. (Also, a spokeswoman for the charity Young Minds told the Telegraph she was concerned about Malik fans self-harming.)Bright ideasAmong recent inventions not expected to draw venture capital interest (reported by Popular Science in June): (1) A Canadian software engineers machine that unspools toilet paper exactly three squares at a time (but please keep fingers away from the cleaver!). (2) A Japanese shoulder-mounted tomato-feeder that provides nourishment to marathoners without their needing to catch tomatoes provided by supporters. (3) Google software engineer Maurice Bos whiteboard-mounted clock that writes down the exact time, with a marker, at five-minute intervals (after erasing the previous time). Fine points of the lawBritains Home Office, judging requests for asylum by immigrants threatened with deportation but who fear oppressive treatment if returned to their home countries, recently turned down asylum for Nigerian lesbian activist Aderonke Apata, 47, apparently because the office doubted her orientation. Though Apata had submitted testimonials (and even photographs) proving her homosexuality, the Home Office was skeptical because she had children from a previous heterosexual relationship. On the other hand, an immigration court in England ruled in April that a Libyan man, identified only as HU, could not be deported since he is a career criminal and a chronic drunk who would be so unlikely to reform his drinking that he would surely face a lifetime of prison in Libya. The continuing crisisIf only there was somewhere he could have turned for moral guidance: Suspended Catholic Monsignor Kevin Wallin, 63, was sentenced in May to more than five years in prison for running a meth distribution ring from Bridgeport, Conn., where he also operated a sex shop to launder the drug profits. (Though he faced a 10-year sentence, he had a history of charity work and submitted more than 80 letters of support from high-ranking clergy.) People different from usWalter Merrick, 66, was charged with aggravated assault in the New Orleans suburb of Harvey, La., in March after an altercation with neighbor Clarence Sturdivant, 64, over the comparative merits of Busch and Budweiser beers. Bud-man Sturdivant fired the only shot, but a sheriffs deputy said Merrick was the aggressor since he had offered Sturdivant only a Busch. (In Tulsa, Okla., in April, police found two bloodsplattered men in an apartment parking lot at 1 a.m., the result of a dual stabbing spree with broken beer bottles over whether Android phones are superior to iPhones.)

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA18 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 11-17, 2015 efforts are behind the installation of an adaptive field that incorporates special accommodations that put rounding the bases within easier reach. It gives us an opportunity to offer another sport or event for our athletes, says David McKenzie, county director of Special Olympics of Florida-Collier County. Were excited about the future and what we can do. The group recently moved its offices to the newly rebuilt YMCA on Pine Ridge Road. Paul Thein, CEO and president of the Greater Naples YMCA, says the Y plans to use the field for a variety of purposes that fulfills its mission to build families and communities. While the Y owns the field, it will be open regularly for public use, especially by other area nonprofit groups. Our whole point is more about strengthening the community, Mr. Thein continues. Sports are great, but so is family programming. Were going to be using this field all the time youre not going to see Little League tournaments on it. Its more designed for core-valued programming and Special Olympics and play space. Adaptive fields feature a number of features to accommodate athletes who use mobility aids. For example, the entire field will be outfitted with Astroturf for easy maneuverability of wheelchairs and walkers. Also, bases will be painted onto the surface, eliminating the need for the raised bags used on traditional fields. And the field is smaller than a regular field. It will also host the Southwest Florida Warrior Health and Fitness program, a free, six-month course designed by the Red Sox Foundation and the Massachusetts General Hospital Home Base program to help post-9/11 veterans improve their lives through exercise, nutrition, education, stress management and more. Armando Hernandez will coordinate the local Warrior Health and Fitness Program. Its beneficial for anyone who has orthopedic issues or who uses other forms of devices to be mobile, he says about the adaptive field. Also, it brings in a fun factor because none of us are hitting home runs on a real baseball field. Its a feel-good kind of thing. The Naples project is part of the Cal Ripken Sr. Foundations initiative to install 50 ball fields in five years throughout the country. To date, it has built 43 fields, 10 of which are adaptive fields. The foundation led fundraising efforts in the community, securing $100,000 from NCEF to start the project and another $100,000 from Florida Community Bank to keep construction moving. After the groundbreaking ceremony earlier this month, a private donor contributed another $100,000, leaving the project just $65,000 shy of its fundraising goal. For more information about the field, call Mr. Thein at 963-3677. To make a donation, send checks to YMCA, c/o Cal Ripken Ability Field, 5450 YMCA Road, Naples, FL 34109.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA20 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 11-17, 2015 Robert S. Tomsick, MD, FAAD Bringing over 35 years of Mohs surgery and dermatology experience to Naples & Marco IslandWildfire smoke can worsen respiratory woes The Florida Department of Health in Collier County cautions citizens that wildfire smoke is a respiratory irritant that can cause a scratchy throat or irritated eyes and nose. Smoke can also worsen conditions such as asthma and other chronic respiratory or lung conditions. Here are some tips on how to protect your family from smoke: Pay attention to news coverage or health warnings related to the wildfires and the associated smoke, including local air quality reports, which can be found at collierprepares.org. Scroll to the bottom of the page under local and national resources, and view Collier County air quality readings. Use common sense when outside conditions are smoky. Avoid prolonged outdoor activities. It is especially important to limit time spent outdoors for children and persons with existing medical conditions. Stay indoors and keep your air conditioners fresh air intake closed and the filter clean to prevent bringing additional smoke inside. If you do not have an air conditioner, staying inside with the windows closed may be dangerous in extremely hot weather. In these cases, seek alternative shelter with family or friends. People who live in areas that are regularly affected by smoke from wildfires would be well advised to create a clean room in their home to reduce the irritants of wildfire smoke. A good choice is an interior room with as few windows and doors as possible. Follow your doctors advice about taking medicines and following your asthma management plan if you have asthma or other lung disease. Call your doctor if your symptoms worsen. When driving in smoke or fog, decrease your speed, increase your following distance and use your low beams.For more information, contact the Department of Health in Collier County at 252-8049 or visit collierprepares.org. Fitness authors weigh in on happy hour for those trying to shed pounds BY CATHRYNE KELLERFITBIE.comEliminating or limiting alcoholic beverages is one of the few weight-loss strategies nearly all experts agree on. At seven calories per gram, the caloric content of alcohol is higher than that of proteins and carbohydrates (four calories per gram), and nearly as high as fats (nine calories per gram). But its not just about the liquid calories. Though people tend to consume additional calories on drinking days, alcohol can also mess with your metabolism. Your liver normally metabolizes calories from fatty food so you can burn them for energy. (But) when you drink alcohol, your liver is busy metabolizing the booze, which your body perceives as a toxin. The result is youre more likely to store fat calories if youve had a few drinks. Buzzkill? Indeed. But there is hope if youre trying to slim down or stay healthy and dont want to give up happy hour or your weekend wine dates. A 2010 study in the Archives of Internal Medicine suggests that women who regularly consume moderate amounts of alcohol are less likely to gain weight than nondrinkers and are at lower risk for obesity, too. From birthdays to anniversaries to girl-time dates, theres so much to celebrate in life, says Karena Dawn, coauthor of Tone It Up: 28 Days to Fit, Fierce, and Fabulous. And the good news is that a glass of wine or champagne wont derail your fitness efforts, she says. Treating yourself is all about moderation, so you can say cheers with no regrets. Here, Ms. Dawn and her best friend and business partner, Katrina Scott, share their top tips for healthy drinking, adapted from Tone It Up: 1. To minimize alcohols effect on your health and weight, stick to no more than two cocktails a night no more than two or three nights a week. 2. Drink white wine, champagne or clear liquors. Clear alcoholic beverages are lower in congeners, a substance made during the fermentation process that contains several chemicals your body doesnt like. Thus, your liver has to go on overdrive to metabolize them (and doesnt) focus on burning food or fat. 3. Choose mixers with quality ingredients that dont contain added sugar. Say yes to fresh lemon, lime, mint, honey, sea salt and other natural ingredients. Say no to pre-made mixes. 4. Be sure to enjoy a healthy dinner beforehand. Alcohol on an empty stomach will make its way into your bloodstream much quicker. Thatll set you up for a rotten nights sleep ... not to mention a wicked headache in the morning. Plus, if your stomachs full, youll be less tempted by high-calorie snacks. 5. Drink water between each cocktail. Alcohol is dehydrating, so you need to up your H2O intake. Plus, drinking water between cocktails wards off the dreaded hangover, so youre less likely to skip the gym the next morning. 6. Give it a spritz. White wine spritzers are refreshing and delicious. Theyre made with half soda water and half wine, cutting the calories in half. For extra flavor, consider adding a squeeze of lemon or lime. Ms. Dawn and Ms. Scott offer healthy cocktail recipes at toneitup.com.

Unless you live at an altitude above 5,000 feet or in an area with low humidity and hot, dry temperatures, youll have to deal with fleas on your dog or cat. Your veterinarian likely has already recommended a good flea-control program, but if you havent started it yet, now is the time, before the tiny yet vicious vampires send your dog or cat into a frenzy of scratching and biting.Fleas are wingless insects that feed on blood. When a fleas saliva is injected into a pets skin, the substances it contains cause severe itching. A pet with flea allergy dermatitis is not just itchy; his skin can be red or crusty, he may have bare patches where he has bitten or scratched himself raw and his skin may smell bad. Even worse, fleas spread disease. They transmit tapeworms to animals, who can then pass them on to humans, usually children. They are also carriers of bubonic plague. Think thats a medieval disease? Its extremely rare, but it does exist today, and its carried by fleas. Just because you dont see fleas doesnt mean theyre not there. In fact, fleas spend most of their time in the environment, not on your animal. But even if you dont see fleas on your pet, one dead giveaway is flea dirt small black specks you may notice as you groom your dog or cat. The good news is that flea control is way easier now than it was in the past. It wasnt that long ago that pet owners spent hours flea-combing, spraying, dipping and powdering pets and treating their homes and yards in a frantic attempt to keep the bloodsuckers at bay. Flea-control products can be topical (applied to the skin) or oral (taken by mouth). Some protect against other parasites, such as ticks or heartworms. They may contain insect growth regulators, which prevent flea larvae from developing to maturity. Topical products kill adult fleas within hours. They are usually water-resistant, but if you bathe your pet often or he goes swimming every day, they may not be the best choice. Be sure to wear gloves when applying topical products and to use only the amount directed more is not better. Oral products require a prescription from your veterinarian. They are usually chewable, making them easy to give. Mark the calendar so you dont forget when you gave the pill and when you need to give it again. The product that will work best for your pet depends on your location and your pets lifestyle. If your cat goes outdoors, your dog goes swimming frequently or your pet has a high risk of tick exposure, your veterinarian will recommend products appropriate for those scenarios. Most important, never give your cat a flea-control product made for dogs. The formulations made for dogs can kill cats, so read labels carefully before using them on pets. You can also take steps to control fleas in the environment, not just on your pets. Steam-clean carpets and furniture to kill larvae and eggs, and vacuum frequently. Wash pet bedding weekly, using the hot-water cycle. Keep your yard trimmed, and get rid of leaves or other plant debris in shady areas to reduce hiding places for fleas. The latest flea-control products are fast-acting and effective, but if you have a flea infestation or even if you have only a few its still going to take some time before your pets will be fully fleafree. It could take as long as three to four months from the time you begin treatment until you see results. Your veterinarian can recommend a fleacontrol program that will kill eggs, larvae and adult fleas.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JUNE 11-17, 2015 NEWS A23 THE DIVA DIARIESWith maturity comes a new preference in magazinesIll admit it: Im a magazine junkie. I always have been. Even though the Internet provides more immediate satisfaction when it comes to fashion trends and fluffy stories about celebrities, I still cant resist the glossy touch and the weight of a brand new magazine just off the rack. Ive tried to read my iPhone while at the beach or the pool, but it gets sweaty in my hand, and I certainly cant look at fashion slideshows when the glare of the sun is beating down on the screen. No, I prefer to dig into a magazine. But these days, Im wondering if I need to rethink that preference. Im not lying when I tell you that Ive been reading Cosmopolitan since I was old enough to sound out the phrase what to wear on a first date. While Cosmo probably doesnt sound like ideal reading material for a 6-year-old, you have to remember that back then, our parents smoked in the car while we were in it. It was a different time, and Im pretty sure my Mom was delighted that I was reading; it didnt really matter what it was. Truth be told, I skipped the sexy articles of the 0s Cosmo. I just wanted to look at the pretty hairdos and read about what color lipsticks were in for summer. I still do. But Ive come to the realization that Cosmo, Glamour and Allure no longer have a place in my summer beach bag. In other words, Im afraid Ive aged out of them. The evidence is in the pages and even in the ads. For instance, the ad for a new mascara by Maybelline called Chaotic promises that it will make your lashes a perfectly sexy mess. The pouty model looks like shes poured tar on her eyelashes; theyre thickly clumped and sticky exactly the look we so painstakingly try to avoid when applying mascara. To me, the model looks like she has slept in her makeup for several days. Another one of my favorite glossies is reporting that baggy denim overalls are in for summer the exact same stone-washed overalls I wore to death in 1990. Back then, they actually looked edgy/chic with just a black lacy bra underneath and some Doc Martens on my feet. If I wore overalls now, Id look like a sad refugee from Hee Haw. Finally, when it comes to summer hair trends, several magazines are pushing pigtails. Seriously. Pigtails for grown women. Ive actually had arguments with some friends who are over the age of 40 and who insist on wearing pigtails. When they try to tell me pigtails are cute, I remind them that pigtails are cute when youre under 12. And ONLY when youre under 12. Which leads me to the conclusion that the magazines Im reading arent written for women over 40. Theyre written for 20-somethings who wear clumpy mascara, overalls and (ugh) pigtails. Its time to bid the Cosmo girl in me farewell and pick up magazines such as Oprahs O, More and Garden & Gun. This month, Oprah has an article about slimming swimsuits (definitely news you can use), More wants to tell me what my weird health symptoms mean (Im glad Im not the only one with weird health symptoms) and Garden & Gun has some summer cocktail recipes that are much more fitting for me than pigtails. Something tells me that my summer beach reading is getting better with age. Ciao for now, my lovelies!

As they shake hands and turn into the new decade of the 1950s, one sees an odd-looking little vehicle purr past its a Volkswagen Beetle. The other looks up the street and notices, on top of a hill, two golden arches, the symbol of a McDonalds fast-food restaurant. Theyve discovered their futures along with the future of the big brawny American culture of sales and consumption. But in the last quarter of last year, more than 60 years after the setting of that story, McDonalds net sales dropped by 21 percent worldwide, while revenue declined 7 percent. Our results declined as unforeseen events and weak operating performance pressured results in each of geographic segments, CEO Don Thompson told Forbes Magazine. There were several factors, but in the United States one of them included a relatively new category called Fast Casual dining.

BRAUNBROKER-ASSOCIATE, CRS2014 OVERALL TOP SELLING REALTOR COMPANYWIDE MONEY & INVESTINGInvest with your mind, not your heartMy twins graduated kindergarten last week, and to mark the end of the year, the entire class entertained their families with an ocean-themed song-anddance routine as part of the graduation ceremony. As I watched the other parents reaction to their children, I realized that every single one of them though that their child was the best performer up there and was destined for greatness. The one boy who couldnt clap on the beat her mom was thinking how cute that was and how her son was going to be a great CEO, not following the crowd. And the girl picking her nose while screaming off-key, Im sure his mom was beaming with pride too for being so expressive. But, as we all know, most of these predictions will end in disappointment. Twenty years down the road, that boy will probably end up selling week-old flowers on a busy street corner. And the girl probably a fastfood career or maybe even a member of the U.S. Congress. As parents look at their children more subjectively than objectively, so too do investors looking at their investments. I would argue that probably the hardest thing to learn about investing is not the complex jargon, the mathematical bond models, or even processing the massive amount of information available to investors. Instead, it is separating your emotion from your investing decisions. Everyone wants to think that their investments will outperform the market and they will never make a poor decision. But like not all kindergarteners will grow up to be the next Mark Zuckerberg, not all stocks you buy will be the next Facebook. So what can an average investor do to look at his investments in an objective manner? My first recommendation is to set a price band around every investment that you purchase. These bands should be set around 20 percent in either direction of the security. If the price crosses the ceiling or floor, that should trigger an evaluation of the investment. Have the fundamentals or leadership of the business changed? Are there new competitors in the market? Has the macro environment changed? The price move should not trigger an automatic buy or sell, but it definitely should trigger an in-depth evaluation. My second recommendation is to never, ever buy a sinking security so you can Dollar Cost Average down to a lower price point. Stocks are not like big screen TVs on Black Friday. When the price falls, it is not a sale where you are buying the investment at a discount. A frequent sarcastic saying on trading floors is, You liked xyz stock at $40. You gotta love it at $20. No, you dont. When you buy a security and it falls in price, that is the market telling you that your thesis regarding that security is wrong, at least in the short run. So are you smarter than the entire market? If you are Warren Buffet, maybe you are. But I have a secret for you: You are not Warren Buffet. Similarly, dont sell a security too early when it is rising. You bought a stock at $20 and it rose to $40, doubling your money. You are a rock star. So you should sell the stock while the security is hot, right? No. The market is confirming that you are an investing genius. Why pull money off of the table now? In fact, I would rather see an investor add to a winning position than sell. I made this mistake several years ago when I found this travel website I really liked and bought the stock at $25 and sold it at $200. That website was Priceline and it is now trading at almost $1,200 a share. But this doesnt mean that an investor should hold on to a winning investment forever. If the price begins to break down, it is critical to re-evaluate how the investment has changed and whether it is the time to sell. A final recommendation to help stop making emotional investing choices is to not make decisions based solely on a hot tip. I will tell you right now your best friend Harry who has a brother Larry doesnt really know that xyz biotech is going to be releasing a cure for cancer next month. Or if he does, I hope you like wearing orange, because that is insider trading. In the same way, online stock bulletin boards are filled with day traders who are looking to manipulate a stock in the short run for financial gain. If you truly are an investor, as opposed to a trader, there is no good investment today that wont be a good investment a month from now. So take your time when putting your money to work and dont rush into anything because of some seemingly proprietary knowledge. To sum up, investing should be done with your mind, not your heart. This isnt easy to do, but increasing your knowledge of the markets is the best way to start down this path. But enough from me. I have to take my boys to soccer practice. Didnt I tell you? They are going to be the next David Beckhams.

FASTFrom page 1price point than fast food restaurants, perhaps in the $6 to $8 range for a main food feature; a sometimes more daring menu that frequently touts fresh and locally sourced food; healthier food; and perhaps no drive-through. Consumers, on the other hand, appear not to care whether a drive-through exists, as suggested by Tropical Smoothie Caf. Originally a Destin-based chain that began in the 1990s, Tropical Smoothie expanded across many states, was sold to a private investment firm in 2012. It has adjusted both food and dcor to keep up with the growing health awareness of consumers. The 300th store, which opened in Fort Myers in 2011, bustles near an upscale Paradise Bicycles shop in a busy part of town, looking almost identical to the thriving store just south of the Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens both stores allowing consumers to order from the counter, sit down and be served inside or sit outside, all while watching an efficiently trained staff of mostly young people put together a wide range of food and beverages in about three minutes. The emphasis in sandwiches and wraps, salads and the signature fruit smoothies is vibrant taste and healthy, clean eating, restaurant employees say and that includes a menu option both gluten free and beyond meat, a term the company introduced in 2013 for those seeking a vegan, nonGMO meat substitute said to be comprised mostly of soy and pea flour. The concept has worked so well for Tropical Smoothie that it opened its 400th store nationwide at the end of last year, it plans to open its 500th store this year in an expansion that includes Miami, it showed 11.4 percent positive comp sales last year, according to a report in PR Newswire, and it will aim for 800 stores by 2018. Tropical Smoothie Caf has experienced growth that has outpaced the fast casual industry, announced CEO Mike Rotondo. While others within our segment have grown, no one has seen growth like we have. Last year, stores in the chain showed an average unit volume of $526,000, the highest in its history.The competitionOne of the defining features of fast casual is vibrant competition across a range of market niches breakfast and brunch, for example, as such restaurants as the Louisiana-based Another Broken Egg suggests (there is now a Jupiter location for Palm Beach County diners). The pitch line includes this notion, suggesting the market to which it aims its appeal: new favorites worthy of foodie blogs and Instagram pics. Or Mexican, such as Lime Fresh Mexican Grill, opening a new store in Palm Beach Gardens. Its webside reads: Fresh, Healthy, Organic, Sustainable. Were sick of green-washed buzzwords you hear a lot but dont mean much at all. So heres our no-quote truth: Our food is freakin good. Its how we went from one bumpin burrito shop in hell-raising, health-conscious South Beach to over 19 (and counting) along the East Coast. At Zaxbys, with 600 locations in 15 states, cofounded by Georgia-born and raised Zach McLeroy, the CEO, chicken or variations on traditional Southern fried chicken is important, with the de rigueur label hand-breaded, and nine sauces, along with inventive-sounding milk shakes. That puts the chain, which a prominent industry market research firm, Technomic, called the most craveable fast casual restaurant in both 2012 and 2013, in headto-head competition with the newest upstart in the fast casual Florida field: PDQ (People Dedicated to Quality). Nick Reader, a cofounder and the CEO of PDQ, is a 40-yearold Florida native who recently earned a coveted spot on the Gator 100 list of most accomplished University of Florida alumni for his business success with the Tampa-based restaurant. PDQ has just opened its 40th fast casual store in a year that could see as many as 55 stores, now reaching across seven states (all in the South except for one located off the strip in Las Vegas, Mr. Reader says). The store specializes in fresh, handbattered chicken tenders, made to order sandwiches, daily cut fries, hand-spun milkshakes and fresh salads, with dinein, drive thru or catering options, as the promotional literature describes it. But the emphasis on fresh, local and fast service happens in just a couple of minutes in part because the restaurant doesnt try to do too many things, Mr. Reader explains requires that stores have no freezers or no microwaves. The food is fresh, its often locally sourced, and its used immediately or its not used at all. That means the company aims to educate consumers a bit, he adds. What would you have to know about fries, for example? A lot, as it turns out. Fresh cut French fries is one of the most challenging things out there (for us to do), he says. Most fries are frozen, and most frozen potatoes are harvested when the sugar content is perfect. But as weather changes, sugar content changes and coloring changes so the potatoes can be darker or lighter. Sometimes the assumption is, Hey your fries are burned. How do you communicate that they arent burned, in a respectful manner? Thats one challenge for PDQ, and location placement is another. We treated Florida like three different states: the Gulf Coast, South Florida and North Florida with maybe, Orlando, he explains. We cluster the stores once we commit to an area. We have market directors, and the idea is well cluster in a state or the city, when we have a talented person who knows the market. PDQ in particular focuses on the people about 2,500 are now employed, with 60 to 80 per store. The company looks for young people to start, and it believes in rapid promotion based on merit, right up from handspun milkshakes, super-fresh sauces and fresh, hand-cut fries into management, Mr. Reader says. Asked if he thinks minimum wage should be higher, and if he starts employees at a higher than minimum wage, he offers this reasoning: Whatever you raise minimum wage to, everybody will just adjust (and charge higher prices). So the question theyre not asking, the bigger question, is where is the opportunity in a company for people to move up, to make lifechanging careers: what you should ask is, how many people can get promoted, and can move from (minimum wage)? So almost everybody will start at minimum wage but nobody should stay there, working for us. We have 10 or 12 people who have been with us since the beginning, and our management are all six-figure salary employees, he notes. What that all means for the future, and against stiff competition, remains to be seen. But if hands-on hustle and smarts mean anything, PDQ is a good bet. One of the happiest days of my life was when I was driving a busy road in Tampa (where the first stores opened) and I saw a piece of litter just one of our cups on the side of the road, Mr. Reader recalls. The ball had started to roll, right toward the future. You get into a new market and you want it to work and I dont think our food is regional, I think it transfers well to all markets. Its as healthy as you want to be. COURTESY PHOTOPDQ, which opened in 2011, boasts 40 restaurants with plans to expand to 55 soon. READER

With traditional DRIPs, you must already own at least one share of the stock in your own name before you enroll. So if youre not already a shareholder, youll need to buy at least one share through a broker, paying its commission. (We list some brokers with low commissions at broker.fool.com.) Be sure to have the share(s) registered in your name, not the brokerages name, as is typically done. Then you can open a DRIP account with the company and buy additional shares directly through it (or its agent). If you already own shares, you may have to pay your brokerage a fee to switch the registration from its name to yours. A newer variety of DRIPs, direct stock purchase plans (DSPs), operate similarly, except you neednt own any shares before enrolling. You can buy your very first shares through them.All these plans let you dollar-cost average, building a position in a stock by regularly plunking a certain sum into it. Theyll even purchase partial shares for you.For example, if Nike is trading around $100 per share and you send in a $50 contribution, it will buy about a half of a share. When the price is low, you get more shares, and vice versa. (Be sure to keep detailed records of all your purchases for tax time.) Small, regular purchases can really add up, plus shares of strong companies will grow in value over time.Visit the websites of companies youre interested in to see whether they offer these plans.

What Do You Have to Lose?I bought shares of a gold mining company when it was $0.27 per share, getting lots of shares because it was so cheap. I lost $500. Then, because it had some kind of SEC filing, I thought, well maybe, so I bought in again at $1.15 per share. I lost money again. I would have been better off buying one share of something that would have had better upside possibilities. Many people who do not invest told me that I should try a penny stock: What have you got to lose? Well, $500. I dont think those people will give me $500 of their money to buy anything with. I began studying investing from people who can teach me something, people who are doing it and succeeding. And I learned I should know the company that I am buying an ownership in, not just buying it because it is cheap. How many times can I afford to lose $500? D.H., onlineThe Fool Responds: Those are great lessons. Too few people realize that they can do much better buying, say, two shares of a $250 stock than 2,000 shares of a $0.25 stock, and that stocks trading for less than around $5 per share are often ultra-risky penny stocks. More good lessons: A low price doesnt necessarily indicate a bargain. A share of stock represents a small ownership stake in a real company, not just a bet. Searching for a Promising Stock?Shares of Google (Nasdaq: GOOG; Nasdaq: GOOGL) slumped receantly, after the company posted disappointing quarterly results. Dismissing Google as a long-term investment would be a mistake, though. Google has been dealing with declining cost-per-click (CPC) rates for the advertising it sells, spending on far-flung innovations such as its wearable Google Glass and facing competition from upstarts such as Facebook. Despite that, Google offers many reasons to be optimistic about its stock. At $20 a month and $10 per gigabyte used, Googles new wireless service is a breath of fresh air in the Wi-Fi space.Googles wireless plan is yet another means of providing the worlds mobile consumers with what is quickly becoming an end-to-end suite of online solutions. Already, over half the worlds mobile Web access is via a device using Googles Android operating system. Toss in its Fiber initiative, and Google is primed to become a total Internet solution.Google also owns the leading video site in the world. With more than a billion users, YouTube is a potential gold mine. Meanwhile, Googles other revenues category, including Google Play and cloud-computing sales, is generating billions. For long-term investors, Google has too many growth drivers to ignore. (The Motley Fool owns shares of Google and Facebook and has recommended them.) I trace my roots back to a Minneapolis flour mill in 1866. Im a global food giant, with brands such as Gold Medal, Betty Crocker, Chex Mix, Bisquick, Old El Paso and Hamburger Helper. Each day I serve up 60 million servings of whole-grain cereal (with brands such as Wheaties and Cheerios), 27 million servings of Yoplait dairy products, 12 million Nature Valley bars, 5 million Pillsbury cookies, 2 million pounds of Green Giant vegetables, and 1 million servings of Hagen-Dazs ice cream. My predecessor firm and I have paid dividends for 116 consecutive years. Who am I? (Answer: General Mills) Beneficial OwnersQWhats a beneficial owner? R.C., Kankakee, IllinoisAIts the true owner of a security, such as a stock. If some assets are held for you in a trust through a brokerage, for example, youre the beneficial owner. Its a common practice for brokerages to hold stocks in street name (i.e., their own name) instead of putting the shares in your name. This is routine, and the shares still belong to you: Youre the beneficial owner. Leaving shares in street name is generally a good thing, as you dont have to safeguard the paper certificates, and when you want to sell shares, you can do so quickly, not having to find and mail in the certificates. ***QHow risky are mutual funds? Can I lose all of my money in one? J.W., Lexington, KentuckyAThe average fund is less risky than the average stock, because while some stocks can and do fall to zero, mutual funds rarely do. Thats because theyre diversified, with many different holdings. (Few stocks of wellknown companies fall to zero, though. If you keep up with your holdings financial reports and news coverage, youll likely spot red flags long before a company goes out of business.)Still, many funds can significantly underperform the overall market. If you dont have faith in your funds management and dont expect it to perform well in the future, you should sell, taking the loss. Why leave money there, either stagnant or falling in value, when it could be growing elsewhere?

The survey included 97 participants representing 13 urban regions of the state and up to 15 property types. It is one of the most extensive surveys of Florida professional real estate analysts and investors conducted on an ongoing basis. The complete survey results can be found at realestate.ufl.edu. The UF Bergstrom Center for Real Estate Studies supports the real estate courses and degree programs housed within the Warrington College of Business Administration.

At the time, the Turtles had achieved a measure of popularity with a cover of Bob Dylans It Aint Me Babe. The single, released in 1965, around the time the Byrds were also having success with their chiming pop versions of Dylan songs, became a top 10 hit for the Turtles and pulled the group members out of high school and into the world of being a touring act. But the singles that followed had failed to build on the success of It Aint Me Babe. The Turtles were really struggling, singer Mark Volman recalled in an early June phone interview. We had no luck cracking the top 50 We were going through such a down time in our career that, if Happy Together had not done well, we probably would have been out of a record deal. Obviously, Happy Together did pretty well. It became the Turtles signature hit. The song also serves as the title for a package tour Mr. Volman, 67, and his musical partner since the days of the Turtles, Howard Kaylan, are headlining this summer for the sixth straight year. For this years tour, which comes to the Seminole Casino Immokalee on Thursday, June 18, the Turtles are joined by the Association, Mark Lindsay (of Paul Revere & the Raiders fame), the Grass Roots, the Buckinghams and the Cowsills. It represents a return to the 1960s pop roots of the Happy Together tour after Mr. Vollman and Mr. Kaylan had injected a bit of an early 0s rock dimension into PHOTOGRAPHERS FIND ART ANYWHERE, SAYS Jack OBrien, curator of The von Liebig Art Center in Naples. A lot of people might not stop and look at something, he says, but photographers do. They notice moments and details others miss or overlook, capturing those scenes forever.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 11-17, 2015 SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS Spain is for lovers. Who knew? I just spent the last four weeks on a slow trip across the Mediterranean first Greece, then France and finally Spain. The days spun out in the kind of languorous rhythm youll only find in that part of the world, sun-filled and decadent. But the place that surprised me with its sensuous undertones? Spain. Id been once before, nearly a decade ago, on a 10-day tour through the southern part of the country that left me emotionally exhausted. This is what I remember from that voyage: grilled meat served on metal skewers hung from a hook, dusty courtyards with fountains that had run dry, and mountain villages where locals stared with an unwelcoming gaze. What comes to mind most strongly when I think of that trip is stress. Stress so suffocating that it squeezed all the fun out of the experience. The Spaniards I met were impatient and quick-tempered and thats before they got on the highway. Though the cultural sites were beautiful, for years afterward when I thought of Spain I would be overcome with a choking anxiety. So why in the world would I ever return? A cheap flight out of Barcelona. What can I say? Even choking anxiety cant stand up to a good bargain. What shocked me this time around was the overwhelming niceness of northern Spain. I found on this trip people who were on the whole warm, friendly and welcoming. Moreover, I discovered something I never anticipated: that the Spanish way of living is just right for amorous affairs. I say this not from experience, regrettably, but from an awareness of how my days in Barcelona played out. Breakfast technically started at 7 a.m., but I never found anyone there before 9. And even though it ran until 11, the woman at my hotel asked, Is that too early? We can make it later if you need. After sleeping in and a late breakfast, there were just enough hours to visit a monument or a museum or if youre not on vacation, do a bit of work before the heat of the day set in. Then it was the lunch hour, time to settle in for a long and hearty meal with a good bottle of local wine. Once that wrapped up, the sun was blazing and the only thing left to do was have a siesta. If one had a romantic partner on this particular Spanish holiday, I might suggest that a few activities other than sleeping could be in order first. And then napping, of course. When you wake up, the heat of the day will have passed but the sun will still be out until 10 p.m. or so. These lightinfused Catalan evenings are perfect for strolling arm in arm down one of the citys boulevards. Its all very civilized and quite romantic. I had assumed that in this particular Mediterranean circuit, France would earn the romantic honors, but now Im not so sure. Barcelona surprised me with its sensuous pace. Next time I visit the city, Im bringing someone to share it with. Artis Henderson is the author of Unremarried Widow published by Simon and Schuster. artis HENDERSONsandydays@floridaweekly.com

The comedic work showcases the antics of two Shakespearean actors who are so down on their luck they pose as the beloved relatives of a dying and very wealthy woman in hopes of inheriting her millions. Set in the Amish country of York, Pa., in 1958, the story follows actors Leo Clark and Jack Gable as they attempt to impersonate Max and Steve, (nephews, the actors assume) of the elderly, ailing Florence. When they learn that Max and Steve are in reality Maxine and Stephanie, they continue their ruse, undaunted and in drag. Hilarity, of course, ensures. The Island Theater Company cast includes several actors who are familiar to local audiences.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 11-17, 2015 the 50 states after January 2011. Out of 198 entries, three jurors chose 50 images for exhibition. Several are by photographers who have entered the contest every year; many are from firsttimers. One will receive a first-place award of $5,000, to be announced at the preview reception the evening of Friday, June 12. In his jurors statement, photographer Harry Benson says this years winner was a unanimous decision, but that the entries are of such good quality he would have loved to name a dozen firstplace winners. Mr. Benson, born in Scotland, was a regular contributor to LIFE magazine from 1970-2000 and is currently under contract to Vanity Fair magazine. The two other jurors this year are photographers Patty Carroll and Ariel Shanberg. Ms. Carroll is an adjunct full professor at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and has also taught at Columbia College in Chicago, IIT and the Royal College of Art in London. Ms. Shanberg is executive director of the Center for Photography at Woodstock. Theres always a pretty big mix of subject matter and styles, black and white and color, Mr. OBrien says of the contest entries from year to year. He also notes that photographers are using materials such as metal, canvas and acrylic for their images. Its always like a slice of life around the country, where there are people interacting, animals, city streets, suburban scenes, he adds. Photographer Robert Silances entry, Suburban Fences, was taken in Georgia. A long, rectangular image, it shows the intersection of newly raised wooden fences dividing dirt lots, with the tops of newly built homes peering over the top. Its about the south and the farmland being built up, Mr. OBrien says. Thats a new development thats spread out in the farmland. Its a familiar sight around the country, not just in Georgia, he adds. This years entries also include closeups focusing on one particular detail. Cape Coral photographer Paul Rodinos Bel Air shows the ornate hood ornament of an aqua Bel Air car. Other close-ups reveal a frog in a flower, a grasshopper on a f ence, a b utterfly just emerged from its cocoon. That last one is Miss Julia by Caroline Brown of Bonita Springs. She gets up early (to capture these images), Mr. OBrien says. They start to come out (of their cocoons) around sunrise. Shes out there every morning to see whats going on and getting the shot. About the contest entry he adds, Its drying its wings; it has to hang there for a couple of hours to dry its wings out flat. There are studio shots, such as Spencer Pullens image Fruit Loops, showing a slice of orange, lime and lemon dropping into water, their tropical colors made even brighter by the blackness around it. Then there are the portraits caught in the moment. Leslie Zukors Shadow Play shows a baseball player about to make a fly catch, his shadow a visual echo on the wall behind him. The yellow line on top of the green fence behind him is also visually arresting, as is the white painted on it. In Woman in Yellow, Robert Kenedi of Naples captured a woman in Miamis Little Havana, dressed in bright yellow and walking past graff iti on the shuttered storefronts behind her. One drawing is a Santa Claus head, the other a colorful cartoon character leaping in the air, arms raised. Mr. Kenedis artist statement calls the shot a dash of luck. It was a fleeting, eye-catching moment, well worth the run it took me to catch. Then theres Nelson Heads image, Dawn in a New York Hotel Lobby: A man sits in a lobby, his hand covering his face. The photographer thought his subjects eyes were closed, but was surprised to discover otherwise after looking at the shot. There was some kind of problem with his room, it looks to me like he slept in the lobby, Mr. OBrien surmises about the photograph. Hes had a very difficult, unrestful night, and now its time to face the day after all that. We all feel that way at times, after a trip. Antje Woolums Shadow Play shows four wooden tables and metal chairs, their shadows creating an interesting pattern on the pavement. Thats symmetry and composition, says Mr. OBrien. Its also a very familiar sight, not out of the ordinary. But someone got the right vantage point and made art of it. Repetition is a big factor (in this photos appeal). Its telling (viewers): Look around, look at your world through an artists eyes and see whats really PICTUREFrom page 1 Camera USA>> When: June 15-July 17 >> Where: The von Liebig Art Center, Naples >> Hours: 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday-Friday >> Cost: Free, but donations welcome >> Info: 262-6517 or naplesart.org >> More: Opening night preview is 5:30-7:30 p.m. Friday, June 12.

Miss Julia, Caroline Brown, Bonita Springs Dawn in a New York City Hotel Lobby, Nelson Head, Occoquan, Va.Statements from the jurors: Seeing the world with a camera is a difficult experience than discovering without one. It leads one to places, perceptions and experiences that are unpredictable and new. Patty Carroll, adjunct professor, School of the Art Institute of ChicagoThe camera is a passport, often granting us permission into worlds and events otherwise inaccessible as well as for our minds eye and the creativity within. Ariel Shanberg, executive director, Center for Photography at Woodstock I dont believe there is anything like an overnight success. The point is, do not give up, follow your own instincts and keep working. Harry Benson, LIFE magazine and Vanity Fair photographer

Photographer Andre Haluska was struck by the odd juxtaposition of a collection of taxidermied animal heads grouped on the floor near a door, their glass eyes staring at the ceiling. He shot the image and titled it No Exit. When Mr. OBrien looks at the exhibit, its the diversity that strikes him: Theres a wonderful diversity of what people are seeing, how and what theyre responding to.

FLORIDA WRITERSDetour through 24 cities, 650 shows and a million spectators Detour on an Elephant: A Year Dancing with the Greatest Show on Earth by Barbara File Marangon. Ogham Books International. 200 pages. Trade paperback, $15.95. Port Charlotte author Barbara Marangon has written a delightful, lively memoir that traces her experience as a showgirl/dancer/ elephant rider with the Blue Unit of the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus. A ballet dancer in her mid-20s who had performed with groups in New York and several European cities, in 1977 Ms. Marangon was in need of a change and decided the circus could provide that change. In April that year, having recently returned from dancing in Austria, she made her way to Madison Square Gardens to audition for the circus. After being accepted, she spent six weeks at the end of the year training at the circus winter headquarters in Venice near Sarasota. During that period, she began to understand and become part of the circus culture one quite different from anything she had known before. Assigned and trained to ride an elephant, she would be provided with a very special view of the circus environment. She would also form a deep, if temporary, friendship with her partner, a huge-headed elephant named Peggy. Once the tour began in early 1978, the circus train was Ms. Marangons home. It was a world unto itself. The Blue Unit traveled from east to west, stopping in both large and smaller cities. The train ran on freight tracks and often stopped in rather seedy neighborhoods. Throughout her travelogue, the author takes time out to describe the history and capacity of the various arenas as well as the major performers who had played at each one. Each stop is memorable for one reason or another. Living with clowns, bareback riders, trapeze artists, animal trainers and daredevils is likely to provide one with a new view of the human species: a new view of whats normal. Ms. Marangons insights into the circus way of life, its mixture of community and specialty loyalties, are m d b t c S t philJASONpkjason@comcast.net MARANGON

She interlaces her circus memories with two other strands of storytelling. One is circus history. From conversation and from research, she pieces together many of the highlights of this venerable business, entertainment and lifestyle. The other is her earlier professional life, first as a ballet student and later as a performer. Flashbacks, spurred by incidents in her circus life, take readers to Munich for auditions and then performance in a film of Othello; to the Stadttheatre in Klagenfurt, Austria, where she was part of the dance company for a season; and to various dance experiences in New York City. In these ways, Detour on an Elephant opens up from the world Ms. Marangon saw within the moving village that was the circus train and from the window of her tiny private roomette in the clown car. Through that window she saw the mountainous magnificence of the American West and the less attractive sites that freight trains pass through. Whenever possible, she toured the highlights of the cities that housed those large arenas. Her work was often physically demanding, and, like many dancers, she suffered injuries, along with the accompanying frustration and fear for her dancing future. The young womans choice of a career, and especially this circus interlude, was not one that pleased her parents. From an early age, she showed an independent streak as well as the discipline to take responsibility for her choices. Sometimes she doubted herself. Inevitably, she rebounded from loneliness or depression. The circus adventure was in many ways a full slice of life. She met fellow performers from various countries, interacted with them both socially and professionally, learned more than most will ever know about a majestic animal, wore glamorous though uncomfortable makeup and costumes, enjoyed a romance with a bareback rider, survived and learned from a demanding set of conditions and saw the length and breadth of her country. Colorful, humorous and informative, Detour is available online from Amazon and Barnes & Noble. It is also sold at the Sandman Book Company on Burnt Store Road in Punta Gorda and the Ringling Museum gift shop in Sarasota.

The legendary Chita Rivera onstage, singing and dancing! It was this years Tony Awards, broadcast live Sunday night from Radio City Music Hall. Or, as people in the theater feel about it, it was Christmas, your birthday and the Fourth of July all rolled into one a golden opportunity to see Broadway casts perform numbers from Tony-nominated musicals, a kind of televised buffet of the best of Broadway. We dont have The Ed Sullivan Show anymore, which used to allow Americans to have more than just a passing familiarity with Broadway musicals. (Nor, even the more-recent The Rosie ODonnell Show, which championed Broadway shows.) This years three-hour awards show was a whirlwind of dancing and singing and eloquent acceptance speeches. Here are some highlights/thoughts/ reactions: The show was hosted by Kristin Chenoweth and Alan Cumming, a kind of sweet-and-sour dual hosting, with her peppiness and his sardonic, edgy way of looking at things. Kelli OHara received a Tony at the end of the night for Featured Actress in a Musical. I love what I do, she declared, giving a heartfelt, spontaneous and delightful acceptance speech, literally dancing off the stage at its conclusion. You couldnt blame her for being exuberant, as this was her sixth nomination, but her first win. Earlier, near the beginning of the show, she and Ken Wantanabe performed some numbers from The King and I, along with the rest of the cast. And I thought then: She should receive a Tony for just moving and dancing in that huge hoop skirt. I remember when The King and I played at the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall a number of years ago, and I interviewed Sandy Duncan, who was playing the same role of the governess. She spoke about how difficult it was to maneuver in that costume, and how she could knock over small stools and sweep up rugs with that skirt. She also told me about how shed slipped one night, and was helpless, like a turtle on its back, she said. She had to be helped up. She started the number again, from the beginning. Thats show biz. One of the evenings funniest moments came after the selections from The King and I, when we were treated to the back of a gowned and bonneted figure who turned around to reveal a hairy Mr. Cumming dressed in the miles and miles of pink. Then, the cherry on the sundae: Ms. Chenoweth, dressed as the King of Siam, complete with an obvious skullcap to make her look bald, crawled out from underneath his enormous hoop skirt. The King and I won the Tony for Best Revival of a Musical. I remember when the Lincoln Center Theatres production of South Pacific came to the Mann Hall. It was one of the best productions of a musical Ive ever seen, especially for a traveling show, because they had a full ensemble, complete sets and an enormous orchestra. In other words, they put on a musical just the way it wouldve been staged back in the 1940s and s. Heres hoping they do the same with The King and I, and that it plays locally. Josh Groban performed Youll Never Walk Alone. Before he even appeared, they kept hyping him throughout the show. However, with Mr. Cummings thick Scottish accent and my televisions not-sogreat speakers, I originally thought hed said George Gobel. I was very confused. Why would Mr. Cumming be acting all hot and bothered about an older man with a crew cut? And wasnt George Gobel dead? (Yes. The comedian died in 1991.) I laughed when I found out it was actually Mr. Groban. Somebody else besides Mr. Cumming must have a crush on the curly-haired singer, who sang while they allegedly honored those who had died since last years Tony Awards, because the camera focus was all on Mr. Groban during the entire first verse. Then, the curtains begrudgingly parted to show a screen, upon which flashed photos of the deceased, their profession (actor, choreographer, director) and their awards. The people who were being honored in memoriam just seemed an afterthought. Their images were on screen for maybe a second, if that long, sometimes sharing the screen space with someone else. And the cameras kept showing Mr. Groban singing and giving us long shots at strange angles, so we could barely see who had died and was being remembered. Bad decision. Bad television. Bad way to honor the departed. We should have seen a lot less of Mr. Groban. The focus should have been on the screen, and they shouldnt have raced through the names. This was like attending a memorial service and having it be all about the people speaking or singing, rather than about the person who died. It was as if their lives (and their deaths) were insignificant. While Hollywood seems to be all about people who are young and skinny, Broadway seems a little more broad-minded. We had people whove had long careers and are still performing (Ms. Rivera, Tyne Daly) as well as some very young artists, including 11-year-old Sydney Lucas, who sang Ring of Keys from Fun Home, and Alex Sharp, who won a Tony for his role in The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. He received his lead role fresh out of Juilliard, he told the crowd. In his acceptance speech, he said it was for those who feel different, who feel misunderstood. Does it mean I can do anything? Yes, it does, he said. The lovely Helen Mirren won a Tony for once again portraying Queen Elizabeth in The Audience. Your majesty, youve done it again, she declared. Shows that did well, winning multiple Tonys: The Audience, The King and I, Fun Home and The Curious Incident of the Dog at Night-Time. Composer Jenine Tesoi and lyricist Lisa Kron made history, winning a Tony for Best Original Score for Fun Home the first all-female musical team to ever win in this category. And, amazingly, they not only beat Sting, who was also nominated for the award, but the magical team of Kander and Ebb (whove given us the scores to Chicago and Cabaret, among others). Fun Home, based on cartoonist Alison Bechdels 2006 best-selling graphic novel memoir about growing up in a funeral home and discovering that her dad, like her, was gay, won Best Musical. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, based on Mark Haddons 2003 best-selling mystery novel of the same name, won Best Play. Multiple Tony Award-winning actress Bernadette Peters was a presenter, and I was struck by how she read the nominees names, giving them emphasis and meaning, as if she were calling out their names, not just rattling them off. I guess its true what they say about some actors, that they could read the phone book and youd still be fascinated. Believe it or not, it was even great to see some of the commercials, particularly, the Mann Hall spots for shows coming up in the venues 2015-16 Broadway season: Kinky Boots (the 2013 Tony Award winner for Best Musical), Matilda and 2nd Street. And, you want to think longterm, some of the musicals highlighted on the awards show could very well come to the area in future years. Time will tell. a w s t T c nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JUNE 11-17, 2015 C13 CONTRACT BRIDGEFamous handBY STEVE BECKERThis remarkable deal was played in the 1978 national teamof-four championship in France. At the first table, South reached four spades on the bidding shown, and West led a diamond. East won with the ten, cashed the ace and continued with the king. South ruffed with the nine of spades and was overruffed by West with the king. West then returned a low club, taken by declarer with the ace. South now proceeded to make the rest of the tricks and his contract. He cashed the ace of trumps and led a low trump to dummys six. After cashing the ace of hearts and discarding a club, declarer continued with the queen of hearts, planning to discard if East followed low. But East covered with the king, ruffed by declarer, and South then crossed to the ten of trumps to discard his remaining club on the jack of hearts. At the second table, where Dominique Pilon, then an up-and-coming young star, held the West hand, four spades went down one. Again three rounds of diamonds were led, and again declarer ruffed with the nine. But here young Pilon did not overruff! Instead he discarded a heart. Declarer naturally assumed that East had the missing king of trumps. So, in an effort to avoid losing a trump trick if East had the K-7, South played the ace and another club. He was planning to ruff his third club in dummy as soon as possible and then take the marked trump finesse. Alas, Souths plan did not succeed. East won the club with the nine and led a fourth round of diamonds. South confidently ruffed with the queen, young Pilon overruffed with the king, and declarer unexpectedly went down one.

Rated PG-13.Ill See You In My Dreams (Blythe Danner, Sam Elliott, Malin Akerman) Widower Carol (Ms. Danner) is content on her own, but finds happiness when she spends quality time with fellow retiree Bill (Mr. Elliott). Theres something to be said for the simplicity of a good, touching story which is what this is. Its intended for an older crowd but is certainly a movie we can all learn from. Rated PG-13.Tomorrowland 1/2(George Clooney, Britt Robertson, Hugh Laurie) Young genius Casey (Ms. Robertson) and a disgraced inventor (Mr. Clooney) travel to an alternate dimension to try to save the world. The story is a convoluted mess, and the visual effects are far from impressive. What a disappointment. Rated PG.Good Kill 1/2(Ethan Hawke, January Jones, Bruce Greenwood) An Air Force pilot (Mr. Hawke) now remotely flies drones into enemy territory, but struggles balancing family life with the morality of his work. Mr. Hawke gives a strong performance and its a new part of war being explored, but its not always compelling. Rated R.Pitch Perfect 2 (Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Brittany Snow) The Barden Bellas must win the world championships of a cappella or theyll have to disband. It isnt better than its 2012 predecessor, and it doesnt have to be. All it has to do is satisfy the throngs of fans who loved the original and are eagerly coming back for more of the same. Thankfully, it delivers. Rated PG-13.Mad Max (Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult) In the post-apocalyptic future, former cop Max (Mr. Hardy) teams with a female renegade (Ms. Theron) as they try to escape a villain named Immortan Joe (Hugh Keays-Byrne). Loud and exciting non-stop action, its rather artfully done by director George Miller. Rated R.

YesThe opening scene of the film continuance of the HBO show Entourage had me immediately hooked: On a boat in beatific Ibiza, Spain, scantily clad and occasionally topless women drink and flirt with the scarce amount of guys on board. And by flirt I mean throw themselves at in a shameless Girls Gone Wild exercise of debauchery and exuberance. The main character, Vinny (Adrian Grenier), tells a stunning bikini model that his marriage ended nine days ago so he needs a couple hours before hooking up. Ah, yes, this is the life. Behind this hedonistic faade, however, are problems. Vinny is a star actor who insisted on making his directorial debut with a modern adaptation of Hyde (as in Dr. Jekyll and Mr. ), but the film is behind schedule and over budget, which stresses out his former agent and current studio head/boss Ari (Jeremy Piven). Because they need money to finish the movie, Ari travels to Texas to ask a billionaire investor (Billy Bob Thornton) for the funds, with the end result being the investors son Travis (Haley Joel Osment, The Sixth Sense) going to L.A. for a first-hand look at the project. The rest of Vinnys entourage has issues as well: Manager Eric (Kevin Connolly) still has feelings for pregnant exgirlfriend Sloan (Emmanuelle Chriqui), but he cant stop sleeping with other women. Driver Turtle (Jerry Ferrara) has a crush on MMA fighter Ronda Rousey (who plays herself) but cant win her over, and Vinnys brother Johnny (Kevin Dillon) is a struggling actor who gets involved with the wrong woman. You know that feeling when youre around old friends reuniting, but youre not one of the old friends so you dont understand the inside jokes? Thats what Entourage feels like for those who didnt watch the TV show (like me). And so its from an uninitiated perspective that I can say Entourage the movie is an amusing showbiz lark with some good laughs, ample sex and nudity, mediocre drama and numerous cameos (Liam Neeson, Piers Morgan, Tom Brady, Pharrell, Jessica Alba, etc.). To its credit, episodes of the show were about a half hour, and at no point does creator/writer/director Doug Ellins 103-minute film feel like an extended TV episode. Appropriately, each of the main characters has his own story arc, and the sanctity of their friendship always shines through when needed. In this sense, we find the films bigger appeal: These are four guys whove known one another a long time and are loyal to a fault. This care or bromance, man love, whatever you want to call it manifests mostly in insults and practical jokes, but is omnipresent when it matters. Its quite sweet, really. Its well documented that the characters are loosely based on the life and cohorts of Mark Wahlberg, who cameos and serves as a producer here. How much is true to Mr. Wahlbergs life is irrelevant; whats more interesting is the irony that Vinny is the least interesting character. Mr. Grenier is attractive, but his performance is flat and rarely exudes movie-star charisma (which is especially weak given that hes playing a movie star). Vinnys entourage, on the other hand, quips one-liners and expresses a wider array of emotions, and therefore is more compelling to watch. Having seen the movie, I will not watch the TV show (which aired on HBO for eight seasons, ending in 2011). Granted, there might be more to it, but heres the key: Theres nothing in the movie that inspires me to say, Im curious to see how that came to be. Regardless, the movie on its own terms is a fun trip into Hollywood absurdity, and I presume fans of the show will enjoy it more than I did. >> At one point, Ari (Jeremy Piven) calls Travis (Haley Joe Osment) something to the effect of Forrest Gumps kid. Mr. Osment actually did play Forrests son in a few scenes toward the end of Forrest Gump. dan HUDAKwww.punchdrunkmovies.com
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC16 WEEK OF JUNE 11-17, 2015 KOVEL:ANTIQUESSuper sniffle rag a rare find for collectors BY TERRY AND KIM KOVELIt was a surprise when a 1940 handkerchief picturing Superman sold for $5,705 at an online Hakes Americana and Collectibles sale in 2014. Superman was born in 1933 in Cleveland, Ohio. He was created by high-school students Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. Detective Comics Inc. (later DC Comics) bought the idea in 1938. Superman first appeared in a comic book, Action Comics No. 1, in June of that year. He was seen in comic books, radio, movie cartoons, newspaper comic strips, television, movies, video games and even a Broadway show. His likeness appeared on lunch boxes, toys, clothes, sheets, figurines, banks, handkerchiefs, Superman club items, jigsaw puzzles, Halloween costumes, posters, paper dolls, bubble gum and trading cards. He became an icon, and not only his picture but even his yellow shield with the red S is recognized internationally. Collectors want anything related to Superman or his alter ego, Clark Kent. The rayon handkerchief pictures Superman from the waist up, breaking chains across his chest. It was made in 1940 and has Superman and (c) SUPN (copyright for Superman, Inc.) written below the picture. There is one other known handkerchief design with a full-figure picture of Superman, but it is not as rare as this version. Q: I have a smoking cabinet or side table that is 25 inches high, 15 inches wide, and 12 inches deep. It has two doors and one drawer. The inside of the cabinet is lined with some kind of metal It took a super price to buy this rare Superman handkerchief at a Hakes Americana & Collectibles online auction. Its 11 inches square and sold for $5,705.
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JUNE 11-17, 2015 C17 on top, bottom and three sides. The drawer is not lined. What was it used for, and is it worth anything? A: The metal-lined cabinet is a humidor, used for storing cigars, cigarettes or tobacco. The lining controls the humidity for the tobacco. The drawer was used to store smoking accessories. Smoking stands, cabinets and tables were popular in the 1930s when smoking cigars and cigarettes was more common. Now that there are fewer smokers, theyre often used as side tables. They sell for about $150 to $200. Q: I have a very old cuckoo clock. It belonged to my great-great-great-grandparents. It must have been made in the early 1800s. On the hour, a boy and girl pop out of the house-shaped clock and a cuckoo sings. On the half hour, a cuckoo appears and chirps once. I know it is old because it is powered by pineconeshaped weights on a chain. I have to reset the chain once a week. I have seen many new ones that look like my handcarved wooden clock but they run on a battery or an electric plug. Can you tell me why the cuckoo clock idea evolved, and what my antique clock is worth? A: The first cuckoo clocks were made about 1630 in Germany, but it was not until 1738 that the clock like todays was designed. The maker, inspired by a church organ, created a way to make the birds song. He used bellows and whistles to imitate the cuckoo. His first clock was made of paint-decorated wood, and the cuckoo came out of a small door to announce the time. Local craftsmen made many of the cuckoo clocks. The house-shaped clocks were sold by peddlers who carried them from Germany to France and many other parts of Europe. The design has changed slightly during the past 200 years, reflecting the popular styles of the day. But the house, the shaped weights and the cuckoo remained. By Victorian times, the building had more decorations. Often, carved birds, leaves, even deer heads and other animals were added. Your style clock probably was made anytime from about 1850 to 1950. Batteries and electric motors were added to many clocks later. But you still can buy a very traditional clock with weights. Because it is difficult to trace the history of a hand-made piece, collectors tend to buy the clock to use or, if isnt working, to admire. The case size and quality and added decorations determine value. The greater the number of cuckoo and other moving figures there are, the higher the price. New clocks are sold for $50 to about $350. Old ones are not selling for much more, unless theyre very large or unusual. Amazing large examples have sold for over $3,000. Tip: Rinse silverware immediately after dinner, especially if there has been salt or an acid like lemon juice or tomatoes on the menu. They damage the surface.

It really was of interest of us to see how far we could kind of lean a little bit more rock, Mr. Volman said. What hasnt changed is the hit-laden approach to the entire evening.TURTLESFrom page 1COURTESY PHOTOMark Volman and Howard Kaylan of The Turtles
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JUNE 11-17, 2015 C19 Ultimately the goal was to play nothing but hit songs, Mr. Volman said. This is not a tour where youre going to come and hear new material or tracks from albums or b-sides. This is going to be a half hour of number one/top 10 records from every artist. The Turtles got more ambitious musically as time went on. Its fourth album, The Turtles Present the Battle of the Bands, was a concept record in which the Turtles assumed the identities of 12 different bands, each with a different style of music and wrote and recorded one song for each of the groups in that particular style. Before long, though, issues with managers and the groups record label, White Whale Records, (among other things) pulled the group apart in 1970. If the Volman/Kaylan story had ended with the Turtles, they would still be a big part of the overall story of 1960s pop. Instead, the duo has gone on to enjoy a multi-faceted music career that took them into different areas of the music business. Soon after the Turtles ended, Mr. Volman and Mr. Kaylan were recruited by Frank Zappa to join his Mothers of Invention. The duo gained a special place within the Zappa shows, taking on the characters of the comedy/musical duo Flo (Volman) and Eddie (Kaylan). Mr. Zappa was interested in Mr. Volman and Mr. Kaylan because of the Battle of the Bands album. Frank had heard that and really liked the tongue-in-cheek (character of the album), Mr. Volman said. He just really thought the image of the album and the dressing up as all of the bands and everything we were doing, that was what captivated what he thought of our band. Flo & Eddie remained an integral part of Mr. Zappas music through 1972, singing on such key Zappa albums as Live at the Fillmore and Chungas Revenge, and appearing in his movie, 00 Motels. After the members of the early 1970s Mothers went their separate ways, Mr. Volman and Mr. Kaylan launched Flo & Eddie as a duo act. They released seven albums that achieved modest success, while doing multiple tours. During this period, the duo also began building what has been a long career singing background vocals for the likes of Alice Cooper, T. Rex (theyre on the groups great 1970s albums) and Bruce Springsteen (they sing on Hungry Heart). In recent years, Mr. Volman and Mr. Kaylan have ventured into writing kids music while maintaining a steady schedule of headlining concerts to go along with the Happy Together tour, which now looks to be established as an annual outing. That was the hope, Mr. Volman said. That was the hope that we would have it so that people would come out no matter who was doing the tour, so they would know that it was going to be a great show no matter who was plugged into the slots. >> What: The Turtles, headlining the Happy Together tour with the Association, Mark Lindsay of Paul Revere & the Raiders, the Grass Roots, the Buckinghams and the Cowsills >> When: 7:30 p.m. Thursday, June 18 >> Where: Seminole Casino Immokalee >> Tickets: $79-$65 >> Info: (800)-218-007, seminoleimmokaleecasino.com

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JUNE 11-17, 2015 C21 CELEBRITY EXTRASpencer scores breakout roles BY CINDY ELAVSKYQ: I just watched This Is Where I Leave You on HBO, and I absolutely loved it. The story and the cast were superb. Can you tell me about the actress who played Quinn, Jason Batemans wife? I think Ive seen her before. DeeDee T., via emailA: Abigail Spencer, who plays Jason Batemans philandering wife in the adult coming-of-age movie (from the book of the same name), has acted in tons of stuff. Most recently she co-starred in the Sundance drama Rectify, and starting June 21, shes featured in the hit HBO series True Detective. I spoke with Abigail recently about both gigs, and shes so excited for fans to see her in these roles. Regarding True Detective: It was a really great experience. The acting is just wonderful. Colin Farrell is so amazing. I think people are going to be blown away, particularly by his performance on the show. I think everybody is great, but I work mostly with Colin. And shes super-psyched for Rectify, which begins its third season July 9. We left off with Amanthas brother, Daniel, having this very strange confession, or re-confession. And (my character) Amantha wanted to clear his name. When Daniel says, I just want it to be done, that is heartbreaking for her. Im amazed with the actors and writers and the complexity of human beings lives and celebrating it. The show is about celebrating life. About living again and about living your life and understanding who you are. Q: I read your column every week, and I need to ask you about my favorite matinee idol, Shirley Temple. My local newspaper ran something about an exhibit and an auction that I was hoping you could tell me more about. Janice F., Louisville, Ky.A: The traveling museum exhibition, entitled Love, Shirley Temple, has visited select cities from New York to California and will culminate with an auction of hundreds of her personal items at the historic Little Theatre in Kansas City, Missouri, on July 14. You can still catch the exhibition June 20-27 in Fort Worth, Texas, and July 3-8 at the Frazier Museum in your hometown of Louisville. You can order the commemorative hardbound auction book at theriaults.com. Readers: Here is the list of NBC shows that have been renewed and canceled, starting with the renewed shows: The Blacklist, The Biggest Loser, The Celebrity Apprentice, Chicago Fire, Chicago P.D., Grimm, Hannibal, Hollywood Game Night, Law and Order: SVU, The Mysteries of Laura, The Night Shift, Undateable and The Voice. TV shows that have either ended their run or have been canceled include: A to Z, About a Boy, Allegiance, Bad Judge, Constantine, Marry Me, One Big Happy, Parenthood, Parks and Recreation and State of Affairs. As of this writing, the fates of A.D.: The Bible Continues and American Odyssey had not been decided, although both were leaning toward canceled. Write to Cindy at King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

One of the best deals weve found is the Avenue5 Wine Club. Theres no enrollment fee, and monthly tastings are just $25, which is a steal considering that most tastings during season start at $50. From novices to connoisseurs, our club is for anyone who wants to learn a little more about wine and have fun in the process, says Cathy Christopher, director of sales and marketing for the restaurant at Inn on Fifth. Its all about a shared love of exceptional wines. What do you get with the free membership? Tasty educational opportunities, discounts on the wines featured at tastings and bottles when dining in the restaurant, and the opportunity to flex your muscle by rating and suggesting pairings with items from the Avenue5 menu. In addition, Wine Club members can purchase bottles of each evenings featured wines at wholesale prices. At last months inaugural tasting, members sampled six vintages from Orin Swift Cellars paired with small bites selected and prepared by culinary team at Avenue5. A 2013 red blend from Abstract, for example, was paired with roasted Berkshire pork dressed with blackberry jam and sherry gastrique, and a 2011 grenache from D66 was paired with sweet sausage dumplings in mushroom broth. Jane Uttley of Unfiltered Wines gave a presentation to the full house, and vintner/owner David Phinney of Orin Swift participated via Skype. The next Avenue5 Wine Club event takes place from 5-7 p.m. Thursday, June 18, and will showcase champagnes from Piper Heidsieck. Speakers will be bubby specialist Jonathan Boulangeat of Piper Heidsieck and Nikki Sidebottom of Republic National Distributing Company. Guests will taste five selections from the winery, ending with its premier champagne, Piper Heidsieck Rare. Ms. Christopher says Wine Club members can anticipate gatherings that showcase various wine regions as well as some wineries whose owners have homes in Naples, such as Swanson Wines. The curriculum is still developing, she says, adding, Its a mixed bag, but over the course of time everything will be covered. Reservations are required for all Wine Club events.

In a glass bowl, whisk together the hot water and saffron. In a food processor or blender, process the saffron mixture, tomatoes, oil, vinegar and garlic until smooth. Transfer 1/3 cup of the mixture to the bowl. Cover and refrigerate until 10-15 minutes before serving time. Thread each skewer with three tuna cubes, three onion wedges, three bell pepper strips and three zucchini slices. Place kebobs on a rimmed baking sheet. Brush all sides of the kebobs generously with the marinade. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes to an hour. Lightly spray the grill rack with cooking spray. Preheat the grill on medium high. Meanwhile, remove the reserved saffron mixture from the refrigerator and let stand at room temperature for 10-15 minutes. Lightly spray the kebobs with cooking spray. Grill the kebabs, covered, for about 4 minutes or until the fish is the desired doneness and the vegetables are tendercrisp, turning frequently. Serve with the reserved saffron mixture.

When a friend suggested it as an option recently, I cast my vote and immediately started thinking about my two favorite dishes and which one I might have this time: the Signature Salad or the Chicken and Artichoke Pasta. When the appointed day arrived, I had a lighter than usual breakfast and skipped my mid-morning cheese stick in anticipation of the basket of warm foccacia I knew would come with lunch. I had made up my mind that I would have the pasta dish, but when my friend ordered a Greek salad and mentioned she was down 6 pounds, I thought about the dress I need to fit into for a wedding later this month and decided to go the salad route, too. Im glad I did. Just as I remembered it, the Signature Salad was a colorful mix of field greens and roasted red peppers, cherry tomatoes, crumbled goat cheese and a handful of lightly fried artichoke hearts, all tossed with a tangy raspberry vinaigrette. The generous portion satisfied my appetite without risking my ability to zip up the aforementioned cocktail dress. Sometime in July, Ill return to Noodles for the pasta dish Im still craving (sauted chicken with sun-dried tomatoes and kalamata olives in fresh basil cream sauce, served over house-made spinach fettuccine).

Food is sealed in BPA-free plastic bags, submerged in a water bath and then cooked at a low temperature for an extended period, sealing in flavor and vitamins. Mr. Bosco also shuns processed foods, MSG, GMOs and frying. The results are healthy and flavorful although they sometimes take a while to arrive at the table, so stop here only when you have time to linger. The wild-caught sea scallops atop creamy pureed lima beans, studded with golden raisins and yellow and red roasted peppers, were excellent. Smoked salmon with avocado, hearts of palm and cucumber was first-rate as well. Lamb chops with a touch of demi-glace were just right, and the wild-caught halibut was moist and flaky, although it might have benefitted from sauce to enhance its mild flavor. A slice of gluten-free ricotta pie with mixed-berry compote provided a satisfying sweet end note. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed March 2015 LAuberge, Imperial Square, 975 Imperial Golf Course Blvd., Naples; 596-4303 Chef/co-owner Patrick Figini, formerly of Bleu Provence, has created a modest but pleasant establishment in North Naples with his wife, Margaret. Mussels are available any of 10 ways. The Provencale variety with wine, tomatoes, garlic, olives and herbs was delicious. The 1-pound serving was plenty for an appetizer (2 pounds are available as an entree). Housecured smoked salmon with toast points and lightly dressed greens was excellent. Red snapper in wine citrus sauce was simple and elegant and the osso buco featured a fall-off-the-bone tender lamb shank in soulful sauce paired with mashed potatoes that tasted as if they had a touch of lavender. A classic apple tart with vanilla ice cream was a perfect end to the meal. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed August 2014 The Local, 5323 Airport-Pulling Road, Naples; 596-3276 This restaurants name aptly describes its mission: serving as much farmand sea-to-table food as can be procured locally. Its run by chef/owner Jeff Mitchell, a Culinary Institute of America alum. The menu is creative, the setting unfussy and the staff friendly and accommodating. The menu changes frequently, depending on what products are available. I recommend starting with the Pine Island clams in red curry. The sauce is sweet and spicy, redolent of basil and studded with scallions. Its good enough to drink on its own. Pan-seared triggerfish was expertly cooked, enhanced by a mango and avocado salsa. Mustard-roasted Joyce Farms free-range chicken breast with mustard breadcrumbs, soft-boiled egg and pecorino sauce was an imaginative way to dress up poultry. From the side dish choices, we liked the blackened potatoes, the sweet potato cake and the roasted beets with shallots and sherry vinegar. Dont skip dessert its all homemade. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed April 2015The Other Side Bistro, 24630 S. Tamiami Trail, Bonita Springs; 9927433 The breadth of wisdom chef Brian McCarley has accumulated over several years and several restaurants comes together artfully in a tantalizing mlange of American dishes reinterpreted through classical French principles. Humble diner fare such as meatloaf, for instance, is transformed by a cabernet sauvignon demi-glace made from scratch. Its not all amped-up comfort food, though. Surprises pop up throughout the menu, such as artichoke hearts stuffed with goat cheese and quinoa and a rarely seen side dish of rich pommes Anna. Mr. McCarley knows how to transform a meat-and-potatoes dish into something special, like feathery gnocchi tucked into slow-cooked short rib meat and rich mushroom sauce. Seared snapper managed to be straightforward and sophisticated at the same time; the huge, moist fillet had a gorgeous bronze crust and was complemented by tomatofennel compote and saffron-white-wine sauce. Save room for homemade desserts. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed April 2014Veranda E, Escalante Hotel, 290 Fifth Ave. S., Naples; 325-3474 A secret garden just off Fifth Avenue South, Veranda E is an outstanding establishment serving creative food in a lush setting. When the weather is good, reserve a table in the courtyard where tables are dressed in white linens and overlook the hotels pool. Do not miss the Veranda E calamari, a dish that might have ruined me for all other calamari preparations. Done kung pao style, it is tenderized and breaded, fried to a golden brown and topped with peanuts, peppers, chives and a spicy-sweet sauce. Also good were the gulf shrimp with white stone ground corn grits and Creole bacon sauce; salad with Asian pear, Humboldt Fog cheese, organic baby greens and walnut vinaigrette; Hawaiian salmon with strawberry-basil relish and verjus rouge; boneless beef short ribs; and house-made lemon ginger ice cream with fresh berries. Chef Bryan Sutton knows his way around the kitchen and also has a thriving organic garden from which he plucks herbs and veggies. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere Reviewed October 2014

When I visit a Thai restaurant, for instance, I feel obliged to order Pad Thai because Ill regret it if I dont even if Ive been jonesing for a rich coconut-milk curry. And how can I choose summer rolls when green papaya salad beckons? What about crispy duck? Thats something I would never cook at home. This might help you understand why I spent the better part of a week eating mostly Mexican food. It started with an impromptu lunch of tamales and chile rellenos at El Azteca, the best Mexican joint in Cape Coral. I passed up the restaurants delicious moles at that meal, so I decided to mak e the choc olatey Oaxacan delicacy at home over the weekend despite the lengthy list of ingredients and long simmering time. After the leftovers ran out later in the week, I took some coworkers to the best little taqueria in Bonita Springs in the hope of putting the finishing touch on my Mexican obsession with a bounty of south-of-the-border classics. Tortilleria La Rancherita is a small grocery store and restaurant opened in 1999 by Paul Judice, a formally trained chef, with his wife, Yesenia. Tucked in a nondescript plaza next to Sherwin Williams Paints, this little gem is easy to overlook, but savvy foodies have long hailed its tacos as the best in Southwest Florida. Thats due in large part to the tortillas, tender disks of masa de maz that are made fresh on the premises. Once youve had them, you might never be satisfied with supermarket brands again. You can purchase those tortillas along with other Mexican essentials in the small grocery that takes up half of the interior. The other side is the dining room, a cheery space with bright golden-yellow walls and red-topped tables. Corona and Modelo beer signs and mirrors line the walls. The clientele during our lunch was mostly Latino, which is further evidence (if needed) of the foods authenticity. We started with cups of iced horchata ($1.50), the milky, refreshing agua fresca made with pulverized rice and almonds. We nibbled on freshly fried tortilla chips served with cilantro-laced pico de gallo and tart salsa verde. Neither was overly spicy. Any meal at Tortilleria La Rancherita should include a taco sampling. There are some fillings among the 18 choices here that you dont see at every Mexican restaurant, such as liver, ham and cactus. We selected al pastor (pork marinated in a combination of dried chilies, spices and pineapple), chicken and shrimp ($2.50 each, 50 cents extra for shrimp). All of these are recommendable. The pork was succulent and highly seasoned; the shredded chicken was laced in delicious red sauce; and the shrimp were medium sized and perfectly grilled. Each tortilla had a good amount of filling and was strewn with diced onion and chopped cilantro. Slivered radishes, lime wedges and lightly grilled jalapenos garnished the plate; other toppings such as avocado, cheese and tomatoes are 25 cents more. You wont find gobs of sour cream and blankets of orange cheese on dishes at Tortilleria La Rancherita. Such Americanized trappings only obscure the freshness of the ingredients. The most elaborate of our dishes was the flautas ($11.99), filled tortillas rolled like flutes and fried. Our serving contained four flautas with a generous helping of moist shredded beef within. They were topped with lettuce, avocado and tomato and dusted with cotija cheese and drizzled with crema. Platters also include pinto beans topped with crumbled queso fresca and yellow rice studded with corn. Surprisingly, tamales were not being offered on the day we visited, which was disappointing. Instead, we selected a quesadilla ($3.75), a grilled flour tortilla filled with crispy-edged carnitas pork and cheese. Another tasty alternative is the Mexican torta ($7.99), a grilled sandwich available with 10 filling choices. We opted for longaniza, a Mexican pork sausage that was salty and spicy. It made for a good contrast with the smear of refried beans, lettuce, tomato, avocado and cheese the toasted bread contained. We didnt notice any desserts on the menu, and our server didnt offer anything. Service is pretty straightforward here. If you want a drink refill or something else, you might have to get it yourself. Our server was pleasant enough but appeared to be busy running the grocery counter, too. I reviewed Tortilleria La Rancherita years ago for another publication, and Ive been eager to return ever since. Im glad to know its still upholding the high standard of quality and authenticity it has since become know for. The next time a hankering for Mexican food hits, Ill make a beeline for La Rancherita.

BY KELLY MERRITTFlorida Weekly CorrespondentWhen Naples design newcomer Laverne Gehman received an assignment to revamp his clients uninspiring, non-functional living room, he was tasked with finding a different arrangement to repurpose the space. He says while the project didnt come with a blank check, the love was evident in details such as wrought iron and colored-glass lamps, drapery hardware to reflect the furniture and carpet, and carved detail on chairs and lighting. Even if your style is less traditional or more monochromatic, there are always ways to find detailed accents to create a look that is as unique as you are, Mr. Gehman says. This was the last room to be given attention in a long series of rooms, and having brought early apartment furniture along when they moved in, the intention was to redecorate this space someday. Mr. Gehman says that someday was continually put off due to children going off to college until finally the client was ready to decorate the space. The room functioned as a morning coffee and reading room for the husband and wife. We carried black accents throughout the project and complemented the finished project with small splashes of accent colors and glam lighting, keeping the window treatments light with the use of colorful fabric panels to add to the softness of the room, he says. The challenges included a baby grand piano he had to leave in the space, which limited the options, plus the owners wanted to keep the color scheme that was already part of the house, and have the space still function as a reading room. When it comes to planning these types of spaces, these challenges are what make the project fun, and several things made this room unique, including a different layout, unique flooring option and bright accent colors, Mr. Gehman says. We did not try to force a sofa into the room just because that is what they originally had there, because such a large piece of furniture was unnecessary and would have crowded the space. Instead, Mr. Gehman used two comfy chairs with delicate, carved arms and added a round ottoman to be shared by both chairs. Typical plain carpet was replaced by a patterned, woven carpet with a black background with a tea-stained look and color to complement furniture and drapery panels. The overall effect of this flooring tied the adjoining room colors into this room, as well as giving the room a much larger dimensional perspective, he says. Mr. Gehmans tips for revamping a home, or even a single room, include getting a professional opinion, not feeling like you have to be trendy and using caution when going the DIY route. Clearly, someone who deals with similar problems and questions over a period of many years can take a look and almost immediately see the home or the room to be renovated in a completely different way, so in the long run, someone with these skills will save you time and costly mistakes, he says. Also, I have seen people do things in their own home just because it was the trendy thing to do like something a friend had done so dont give into peer pressure when designing a home. Mr. Gehman also encourages homeowners not to be afraid to follow their own intuitions. He says with the help of an experienced designer, a renovation project can take a homeowner outside the comfort zone. But as informed as consumers think they are, there are professionals in every field for a reason. It is unfortunate that so many people think they are saving buckets of money doing a renovation themselves, because it usually shows, Mr. Gehman says. Consider what you do as a profession, and then think about whether everyone can do it. You will have more satisfaction seeing a finished project done correctly. Laverne S.

4 LUXE LIVING JUNE 2015 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYNever afraid of contrast, Mr. Couturier furnished the room with a diverse collection of pieces, including an early American highboy chest and a contemporary goatskin-covered stool by Herv Van der Strten. By KELLY MERRITTFlorida Weekly CorrespondentTo say that acclaimed international architect and interior designer Robert Couturier has a passion for luxury and beauty is an understatement. The man who has said hes completely addicted to luxury. I have no ability for anything else is right at home in Naples, where houses can cost tens of millions of dollars. He has completed projects in Naples, but Mr. Couturier made design history in 1987 when billionaire financier Sir James Goldsmith entrusted the then 32-year-old with the design and continuous embellishment of the financiers 20,000-acre estate in Mexico. Ever since, Mr. Couturier has served as the barometer of how a home should stimulate the senses. Recently, Mr. Couturiers first monograph, Robert Couturier: Designing Paradises, featuring his penchant for the Old World and contemporary eras that he effortlessly brings together, was picked as one of Vogue magazines top 10 design books. Written by Mr. Couturier and Tim McKeough with photos by Tim Street-Porter, the book includes a preface by Carolyne Roehm and afterword by Caroline Weber, professor of French culture at Columbia University. Designing Paradises opens a window into what could be possible, were one able to pluck a dream house directly from heaven. The book contains such unlikely bedfellows as a Louis XVI commode paired with a 1960s lamp reminiscent of Mr. Couturiers abilities to thoughtfully combine different eras in the same space. Best of all, readers get to see what Mr. Couturier himself loves about his own home. Designing Paradises gives a glimpse of Mr. Couturiers country estate in Kent, Connecticut, including his neoclassical-style pavilion. We talked with Mr. Couturier about his design philosophy, what he finds most charming about Naples and whats next in his legendary career. Q: Naples is one of the most exclusive areas in the U.S. What did you find fun about working in our area? A: We did a couple of houses in Naples. Naples is very beautiful and impeccably kept. A branch falls on the ground and it miraculously disappears almost immediately! Q: Your book is truly beautiful. What was it like to see this outstanding body of work in print for the first time? A: Thank you very much. Well, it looks as if it is someone elses work. It is quite humbling, and at the same time, one feels proud. Q: Its clear from the books pages that your home is a respite from the outside world. Will it always be a work in progress or do you consider it finished? A: There is not one solution for one space, but truly a multitude of possibilities. I live the way I want, and I make my dreams possible. I consider myself inordinately happy and fantastically lucky.ROBERTDESIGNER Q&A is right at home as a luxury addict in NaplesCOUTURIER ZACH DESART Paneling painted a bright Herms orange and brown enlivens the family room, along with a serpentine sofa by Vladimir Kagan and coffee table by Mattia Bonetti.

6 LUXE LIVING JUNE 2015 DESIGNER Q&A www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY Q: Whats your favorite homedesign trend right now? A: Honestly, there is no trend right now other than green architecture that I find all that appealing in home design. Q: What trends are you glad to see go by the wayside? A: There are not enough trends that I find going by the wayside! I wish they would stop building humongous houses or great rooms, which as one friend of mine puts it, great rooms which at the end are not-so-great rooms. Q: If you could have another designer create a home for you personally to live or vacation in, who would that be and why? A: This is a difficult question because there is nobody that comes to mind except for Allan Greenberg, whose work is beyond impeccable and beautiful. But I am a classicist myself; that is not to say that I dont like contemporary architecture, because I do love it, but not to live in at the moment. Q: Could you share something about a project that was especially challenging? What were some obstacles you had to overcome? A: The only challenges that arise come from the difficulty clients have putting into words what they want, and clients have to understand drawings, and mostly for me to understand the clients. Consequently, I only work with people with whom if I dont know them already I would feel comfortable and have pleasure getting to know and keeping as friends forever. That is absolutely non-negotiable. Q: Can you share come advice for achieving a lovely coastal look without falling into that paint-by-number pastel trap? A: These types of houses smell, look and ultimately are fake because instead of terra cotta, the roof tiles are made of concrete, and much of the architectural detailing is phony, like fake columns, fake balustrades, rather than true materials like real roof tiles, real plaster, real wood. Dishonesty or ignorance in design give birth to these hideous, overblown, wedding-cake-looking, cardboard palaces. I guess if architects were slightly less dishonest, it would all look better, and it is not the clients fault, but exclusively the fault of the developer and the architect.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com JUNE 2015 LUXE LIVING 9COVER STORYThere is never a moment when I am out and about that my eyes arent drawn to objects that are appealing, and sometimes I bring random goodies home and integrate them into my surroundings ... If you love something, you can find a place for it. artful home By KELLY MERRITTFlorida Weekly CorrespondentSome homes showcase art and belongings, but others do much more. Some homes tell a story. The residence of one Naples couple does the latter in a perfect marriage of careful placement and playful consideration, creating a welcoming space full of joy and luxury. I cannot say there is any specific design theme other than simply surrounding myself with furniture and pieces that simply feel comfortable and happy, says the owner, who prefers not to be identified. Happy seems like a silly theme, but for me, it works. Walking into any home, one should feel a sense of peace, calm and joy and that can be achieved in many ways. Harmonious use of special pieces creates a perfect happy placeSEE ARTFUL, 10 PHOTOS BY TIM GIBBONS / FLORIDA WEEKLYTheMASTERED The walls along the staircases in the home all showcase carefully placed art.
10 LUXE LIVING JUNE 2015 COVER STORY www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYShe continues by sharing some of those ways, which can include specific antiques that are reminders of family traditions, a dominant color that pleases the eye or seating that is cozy and welcoming. She responds particularly well to bright light and color in her main living spaces and more muted colors in private areas. It is a look that works beautifully in this art-filled home, which begs both owners and visitors to stay then stay longer. There is never a moment when I am out and about that my eyes arent drawn to objects that are appealing, and sometimes I bring random goodies home and integrate them into my surroundings, the owner says. If you love something, you can find a place for it. The kitchen is incredibly streamlined, yet it isnt antiseptic. The dcor and layout allow the accent pieces to shine. The homeowner says its not hard to achieve this look. I am a big proponent of keeping kitchen counters rather spare and allowing them to serve as a design space in addition to their utilitarian purpose. For example, small objects can be beautiful as well as useful, she says. There is a gorgeous vintage box on my counter and it acts as our key keeper plus boxes and baskets are one of the best designer secrets; (they) come in many shapes and sizes to be worked into any decor, from contemporary to traditional. The artwork throughout the home is nothing less than stunning, and the variations of the art suggest that an expert collector lives here. But this homeowner solved the logistical issues of placing so much art especially along the stairs by going old school. My husband and I did precise measurements, and I transferred them to a scale-model draft drawing of the wall, then made small-scale models of each painting and simply laid them out on my drawing to get a feel for the dimensions and negative space, keeping in mind that the bottom of paintings need to be above a certain height, the homeowner says. It is almost as if you isolate the area on the wall where the artwork should live kind of like assessing where a house should be on a parcel of land. Once it was practical to do so, the homeowner says they taped dark paper the actual size of the works directly on the wall with painters tape to resolve any placement issues. Using measurements from a fixed reference point makes it that much easier, and using the ceiling/floor and left/ right walls as your fixed references, she says. Having scale models makes this much simpler once someone is up on that ladder, and if I have enough floor space, I will also set out the pieces in an arrangement directly on the floor and look at it from above. It helps that these crafty and friendly homeowners enlisted the help of gentle-ARTFULFrom page 9PHOTOS BY TIM GIBBONS / FLORIDA WEEKLYThe bedrooms, including those that belong to the couples children, have received the royal treatment. The office on the second floor features unique furnishings that set a perfect scene in which to display more art. Art for beginnersJust where does a homeowner begin in the art-collection process? Debbie Reed of Sheldon Fine Art believes that art is a matter of the heart. It all begins with love. Here are Ms. Reeds tips for starting off right. >> Buy something you love. If you love a painting from the beginning, you will probably love it for many years to come. >> Eat dessert rst. If you are purchasing art for the home, buy signature pieces of art before buying one stick of furniture. >> Get personal. Discover your own personal style; know what type of art really appeals to you. >> Enlist the help of a reputable art gallery. >> Dont be afraid to combine artwork. When you display pieces together, you make a big statement.
men with no fear of height to assist in hanging the art. The windows of the home let in so much light that artificial lighting almost seems an afterthought. But can lighting can be another avenue for creative expression? This homeowner thinks so. I adore glass and I adore vintage, she says. My passions led me on a quest for pairs of sconces on various sites, anywhere from eBay to 1stdibs, and antique shows and flea markets can also be great sources. I find that lighting flanking artwork can act as an additional frame of sorts, and once the sun goes down, you really do need adequate lighting to appreciate the pieces. For example, one of the homeowners major works has both silver and gold leaf within the body of the painting. In this particular instance, it is imperative to have adequate lighting to truly appreciate the internal glow of the work, she says. But how can someone who doesnt have this homeowners knowledge of art begin such a journey? She recommends establishing a good relationship with a gallery that can match works to the home and people who live in it. Art personalizes a space, adds character that simply cannot be replicated by anyone other than you and is a fingerprint of sorts, she says. The same group of furnishings, when surrounded by different accessories and art, have a completely different feel. For example, a beautiful, tufted, velvet sofa with a Monet above it feels much different than the same sofa paired with a de Kooning drip painting.The splendor of Sheldon The homeowners have fostered relationships with several galleries along their path of collecting the art they l ove, but at the top of that list is the local gallery Sheldon Fine Art. For more than 30 years, Sheldon Fine Art has represented local, American and European artists in seascape, landscape, figurative and abstract art. It can be like dating a particular painting might be beautiful, but if it doesnt speak to you, it will never be a good match, the homeowner says. And frankly, it can be difficult to make the rounds to various galleries, so a trusted adviser can assist you with acquiring works, whether they are across town or across the country. Debbie Reed of Sheldon Fine Art says working with this homeowner is a dream come true for the gallery. She brings so much to the table, including a passion for both interior design and contemporary art as evidenced by the interplay of interior furnishings and her art collection, Ms. Reed says. Most of all, she knows what she likes, and she knows exactly how to combine it all to create an amazing and inviting home filled with unique objects dart. Because Sheldon Fine Art is a very approachable gallery, welcoming people who know art and people who dont, new customers to the gallery can expect a friendly, relaxed gallery atmosphere. Guests in our gallery are encouraged to take their time to enjoy the work of the many artists on display and to discuss the art as well as the services we offer, Ms. Reed says. The gallery has something for everyone in a range of prices from paintings to unique jewelry to art glass. The outdoor spaces adjacent to this magnificent home are works of art of another kind. The homeowner says her quest for beautiful outdoor living space is fueled by a number of issues. Being that we are from the Northeast, we appreciate the warm climate here in Naples and we try to be outside as much as possible, especially during winter season, she says. One of my personal hobbies is the type of gardening that results in chipped nails and a happy heart, but I dont want to be outside tending a garden all day. For this reason, she chose a simple landscape plan with some areas for tending and exploration. With the addition of high-speed Internet and cable, my husband utilizes the outdoor area as an office as well. Your outside furnishings should not be an afterthought, and should be just as cozy and lovely as what fills the inside of your home. When asked for any tips this astute collector might share about creating an art-filled home that also allows for an active lifestyle, her answer is much like the home itself. Art doesnt have to be serious and stuffy. It can be playful and make you smile, she says. It simply needs to make your home feel special to you. There will be people who dont appreciate your taste or might actually find it objectionable or unpleasant. Ultimately, your home is about you your needs, your loves, your taste.

12 LUXE LIVING JUNE 2015 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYSHOP TALKZazou puts zest in Naples shopping BY KELLY MERRITTFlorida Weekly CorrespondentFor the Neapolitan who loves to shop, few places tickle the fancy like Zazou. The white exterior of the flagship location in the Hibiscus Center, with its unique architecture, just exudes elegance, much like the contents of this special store. Walking into Zazou, you find so many things you want that budgetary concerns and excuses not to buy seem to go out the window. We are a Naples destination store thats different than the same corporate stores you see everywhere, says Blake Helgren, who works in the family business along with his mother and father, Beverley and Dave Helgren. In Southwest Florida, Zazou is the exclusive retailer for MacKenzie-Childs and one of the largest independent retailers of the brand in the country. The line includes ceramics, enamelware, rugs, lighting and furniture, all of which is available or for order at all four Zazou locations. The stores take much of the guesswork out of the shopping process, which is no accident. The owners have carefully chosen all realms of furnishings and accents so that the pieces marry well in any design scheme. Also included in the eclectic mix of charming merchandise is a coastal furniture line that we sell off of our showroom floors in Naples in the Hibiscus Center and in Bonita Springs, Mr. Helgren says. These furnishings complement MacKenzie-Childs beautifully. The practical furniture available in the store ranges from dining tables to consoles, side tables and barstools to benches in either distressed-white or river-ash finishes. There is even a childrens section with what have to be the softest stuffed animals anywhere. The store is unusual because at Zazou, people can shop for housewares and womens clothing. Its actually two stores in one, which works well for the family. People can usually find something in either side of the store. Both are upscale resources for Naples shoppers due to the high quality of the merchandise the Helgren family selects. Many women do all of their shopping at Zazou because they can get everything they need for the home and wardrobe here including flowing dresses for VIP parties as well as relaxed outfits for everyday wear. Zazou is a lifestyle boutique featuring womens fashion that is more than just country club casual, Beverley Helgren says. Our fashion lines include Michael Stars, David Cline, Comfy USA, Arche Shoes, Fabrizio Gianni, Pure Amici and Flax. The family has another Italian line they love to carry in the store: Inizio. What makes this line special is that its linen, which works well in hot climates; and done in a European cut, so it has a different look than anything in a department store. A lot of our clothes have that European feel customers like down here, and that goes along with our goal of trying to carry things that are not available in department stores, says Mrs. Helgren, who with her husband started working in the business 23 years ago. They now have three stores in Naples and one in Bonita Springs. Blake Helgren came into the business in the last 10 years, and he is very instrumental with furniture buying and the design work in the store. All of our lines work well together, Mrs. Helgren says. Other benefits to shopping at Zazou include cute suggestions for creative storage and placement. For instance, a cookie jar does double duty as a K-cup storage jar while a precious rug serves as PHOTOS BY TIM GIBBONS / FLORIDA WEEKLYBeverley and Blake Helgren work in the family business with Dave Helgren (not pic-The childrens section is filled with super-soft stuffed animals. iifilledwithsuper-softstuffed animals. ment store We specialize in Gourmet Kitchens, Baths & Spas, Custom Cabinetry and Complete Renovations.

We respond to what our customers want, and each season we bring in new lines we didnt have before, so its about carrying lines that our customers wait for and want.
